Abstract

This Article tells the story of Gerogine v. Amchem Products, Inc., a class action involving asbestos-related personal injury claims. Georgine was filed in federal district court on January 15, 1993. On the same day, class counsel and the lawyers for the defendants filed a proposed settlement with the court. The court authorized notice to the class, allowed a period for opt-outs, recognized objectors to the settlement, ordered discovery proceedings, held a fairness hearing, and, in August 1994, approved the settlement. The objectors to the settlement retained me to testify as an expert witness on the ethics of class counsel.
