Watching it Work: The Impact of Ohio's Asbestos Trust Transparency Law on Tort Litigation in the State

U.S. Chamber of Commerce

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Institute for Legal Reform released a report titled "Watching it Work: The Impact of Ohio's Asbestos Trust Transparency Law on Tort Litigation in the State Ohio," which analyzes the impact of the law and how it has affected the time it takes litigation to go to trial and be solved. Ohio was the first state in the country to pass asbestos trust transparency reforms in 2013, and this case offers a example of the success of the reform--"trust transparency reforms appear to have accomplished the goal of ensuring transparency and fairness without imposing significant burdens on plaintiffs."
