This article, authored by mass torts and product liability partner Catherine Morris Krow, discusses the reasons why the nanotechnology industry needs to pay attention to the lessons learned from asbestos litigation. An excerpt is included below.
With greater knowledge comes greater responsibility, and greater liability. When it comes to nanotechnology, our ability to understand the potential risks is unprecedented, thanks in part to the asbestos mass tort experience. If the nanotechnology industry wants to avoid a similar catastrophe, the lessons of the asbestos litigation should be heeded now.
