Rights of Mesothelioma Victim Protected by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court held that, under the 2 disease rule, a plaintiff should be permitted to file a second claim for a second asbestos-related cancer.  The plaintiff previously had a claim for lung cancer, from which he recovered, but then developed mesothelioma.  The defendants had argued that the two disease rule was limited to one claim for a non-cancerous disease, and one claim for an asbestos-related cancer.Congratulations to my friend Ed Nass for securing this important victory.
