Despite Garlock Settlement, Asbestos Lawyers Can’t Shake Racketeering Claims Yet

John O’Brien

Some asbestos personal injury lawyers who eluded federal racketeering charges when the parent of Garlock Sealing Technologies settled its asbestos liability claims are back in the soup, as John Crane Inc. filed RICO charges against the Shein Law and Simon Greenstone firms on June 6, 2016.  JCI previously had sought to join the Garlock RICO suits. The JCI filings in a U.S. District Court in Illinois say the law firms systematically misrepresented and concealed evidence and committed fraud. (The two JCI complaints can be seen in this website’s Resource Center).
