Justices Throw Out $1.5 Billion Asbestos Settlement, Citing Possible Conflict of Interest

The Supreme Court today set aside a $1.5 billion landmark settlement that was to have resolved the claims of as many as 186,000 victims of asbestos poisoning against the Fibreboard Corporation, one of the leading makers of products using the fire-retardant substance.

The Justices concluded that the lawyers for the claimants had a possible conflict of interest: getting the most for their clients and striking a quick deal that would garner huge legal fees. They also found that in approving an agreement that would have sharply limited any other lawsuits brought against Fibreboard, the lower court had failed to consider that there was almost certainly more money available for the claims, because Fibreboard was only contributing $500,000, with its insurers putting up the rest. Fibreboard was sold to Owens Corning in 1997 for $515 million.
