Hinshaw partner Craig Liljestrand has published his latest Chicago Daily Law Bulletin column titled "Ruling gives asbestos plaintiffs opening to present their arguments." The article analyzes the case of Ramsey v. Georgia Southern University Advanced Development Center, No. 305, 2017, 2018 Del. LEXIS 302, where the Delaware Supreme Court considered the scope of manufacturer liability in a take home asbestos exposure case.

As described by Liljestrand, the Court determined that an employee's spouse, harmed by take home asbestos exposure, may sue the asbestos product manufacturer if it failed to provide warnings to the spouse's employer.
