Craig Liljestrand's CDLB Column: South Carolina District Court Dismisses Asbestos Claim

January 7, 2019

Hinshaw partner Craig Liljestrand has published his latest Chicago Daily Law Bulletin column. Titled "South Carolina workers' comp statute ends asbestos claim in two ways," the article analyzes Matthews v. E. I. du Pont de Nemours & Co., Civil Action No. 4:16-CV-02934-RBH, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 193735 (D. S.C., Nov. 13, 2018).

As Liljestrand explains, in Matthews the U.S. District Court for the District of South Carolina dismissed the complaint after finding that the plaintiff was considered a "statutory employee" under the South Carolina Workers' Compensation Act and was therefore within the scope of the exclusive remedy provision and the act's statue of repose.
