ABSTRACT

In the last five years, a quarter of members of the National Lumber and Building Material Dealers Association have been sued. The former makers of lead based paints said that they are free of liability since they stopped the sale before the government banned it. It is stated that as a result of asbestos litigation, more then 70 companies were bankrupt.
