Wearing asbestos legal undies?

Quantum Meruit gives a young practitioner’s perspective on the likelihood of truthfulness of certain evidence being given by a lawyer from Allens Arthur Robinson (acting for James Hardie) before the Jackson commission of inquiry. The general topic is one on which I also blogged at length recently.

QM is dead right. The Allens lawyer’s evidence sounds dodgy as all hell. If there’s any justice, they’ll fry for their role in assisting James Hardie to liberate its assets from the clutches of litigants dying from asbestos-related diseases. But I won’t be holding my breath. And the litigants can’t. They’re lucky if they can breathe at all.
