Libby, Montana has been suffering from asbestos related diseases such as mesothelioma for years. This is because of the mine that was operated by WR Grace & Co. This mine exposed the workers to large amounts of asbestos which were tracked back into town and to the families of the miners. Through all this, WR Grace never told the workers of the danger or the presence of the dangerous substance.
In the case that is set to begin next week, the judge has said that "there are no crime victims identifiable." Unfortunately, this could mean that the townspeople of Libby will not be able to watch the trial because they will be serving as witnesses. This would mean that they will not know whether or not justice is being served until the trial is already over. Many are trying to appeal this decision before the trial starts.
Often, knowing that the justice system is working is a great condolence to the victims and families of asbestos exposure. If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, contact the Montana mesothelioma attorneys of Williams Kherkher at 800-220-9341.
