According to defense attorneys for WR Grace and the five former executives on trial, the prosecution has tainted the trial through its misconduct. According to the defense, one of the prosecution's key witnesses, Robert Locke, lied on the stand and had too close of a working relationship with the prosecution. Judge Molloy seems to be in concurrence.
According to Molloy, there were "serious problems here in the way evidence has been selectively produced and the way witnesses have been dealt with." The defense plans to have Attorney General Eric Holder investigate the trial. They will also ask that the case be dismissed and that the defendants be cleared of all charges held against them.
Judge Molloy will hold a hearing on April 27 to consider the motion to throw out the asbestos case. If you or someone you know has been exposed to asbestos, contact the Montana mesothelioma attorneys of Williams Kherkher at 800-781-3955.
