Los Angeles Partner Stephen Kelley's article, "Asbestos Litigation: New Order on Disclosure of Bankruptcy Filings Creates New Transparency," appeared in the 2015 summer issue of Verdict magazine. Stephen discusses the significance of a Los Angeles Superior Court's order directing disclosure of bankruptcy trust claims information in the context of Southern California asbestos litigation.
"Disclosure of claims relating to bankruptcy trust filings helps level the playing field for current asbestos defendants," Stephen says in the article. "Exposure of such claims allows defendants to identify inconsistent claims and argue for a proper allocation of fault among all potentially liable parties."
Stephen has built a strong practice covering a variety of complex asbestos/toxic tort cases and business litigation matters in the state of California and has represented clients in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Central District of California.
