Mesothelioma lawyer news alert: A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit alleging fraud and conspiracy over an asbestosis diagnosis.
Mesothelioma Cancer News (West Virginia) – A U.S. District Judge has dismissed a lawsuit by a transportation company that accused a radiologist and law firm of fraud and conspiracy. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), U.S. District Judge Frederick Stamp dismissed a case against Pittsburg attorneys Robert Pierce and Louis Raimond and Dr. Raymond Harron, brought by Florida based CSX Transportation, due to insufficient evidence.
As noted by the AP, the transportation company filed the lawsuit alleging the diagnosis of asbestosis in Kentucky railroad worker Earl Baylor was fraudulent. Harron was reportedly investigated by the Texas Medical Board for questionable lung disease diagnoses, and agreed to no longer practice medicine in the state in 2007.
