Governor Rick Perry has signed legislation establishing a procedure for dismissing pre-2005 asbestos and silica claims from the inactive docket. HB 1325 by Rep. Doug Miller (R-New Braunfels) and Sen. Robert Duncan (R-Lubbock) allows the MDL court to dismiss claims filed under the old law for which the medical criteria for determining impairment haven not been met. Those claims may be refiled in the future under the old law. TCJL is grateful to Rep. Miller and Sen. Duncan for their leadership on this issue.
