Asbestos Talc Defendant Faces Punitive Damages

Asbestos talc defendant, Engelhard, successor to BASF Catalysts chemical company, ("BASF") had documents showing its talc contained asbestos. Plaintiffs allege that a BASF scientist circulated a memo to purge all such proof, and allege BASF and its law firm obtained false information and included it in court filings. After years of litigation a federal judge in New Jersey denied the law firm's motion to be dismissed from a putative class action in which they are accused of conspiring with BASF to destroy evidence and to fabricate evidence in thousands of asbestos cases.
