New York Appeals Court: Earlier Tumor Didn’t Trigger Time Limit In Asbestos Case
(April 6, 2016, 2:20 PM EDT) -- ALBANY, N.Y. — A pathologist’s opinion that a tumor identified in 2002 is the same as the one diagnosed as malignant epithelial mesothelioma (MEM) in 2010 lacks sufficient reference to the disease in question or that the same disease existed at both times, a New York appeals court panel held March 31 (Linda Wells v. 3M Co. and Genuine Parts Co., et al., No. 521580, N.Y. Sup., App. Div., 3rd Dept.; 2016 N.Y. App. Div. LEXIS 2396).
