Cline v. Ashland, Inc., et al.
Petition seeking U.S. Supreme Court review of the Alabama Supreme Court decision, limiting access to justice for toxic tort victims.
Public Justice filed a petition asking the U.S. Supreme Court to review an outrageous decision of the Alabama Supreme Court that deprives tort victims whose injuries do not manifest within two years of their exposure to a toxic substance of any right to sue for damages. The petition was denied. The petition was co-authored by Alabama’s Robert Leslie Palmer and Public Justice’s Leslie Brueckner and Amy Radon, with assistance from Arthur Bryant.
