U.S. Chamber urges Texas Supreme Court to require early disclosure of nature of alleged claims

February 12, 2010

NCLC urged the Texas Supreme Court to require early disclosure by plaintiffs as to the nature of any claims alleged. In this case, roughly 1,900 plaintiffs sued 30 defendants, alleging exposure to chemical fumes and leaks from several sites where pesticides were mixed or stored. The plaintiffs, though, did not identify particular incidents or products, but rather alleged exposure to a “toxic soup” of emissions in the air for many decades. In its brief, NCLC argued that the court should issue mandamus relief for the defendants and consider various options to address the issue more generally.
