#repost @gpwlaw Every weekday until Sept. 26, we'll be posting trivia questions and answers in honor of #mesotheliomaawarenessday. Today's question: This former GPW founder was featured in a chapter of Paul Brodeur's 1985 "Outrageous Misconduct, The Asbestos Industry on Trial." #asbestoslawyer #asbestoslawyers #asbestos #mesothelioma #mesotheliomaawareness #curemeso #mesoawareness #mesoawarenessday [Yesterday] This medical director from Johns-Manville was deposed in 1976 by GPW and admitted that the reason warning labels weren't added to products "was a business decision." Further stating that "if the application of a caution label identifying a product as hazardous would cut out sales, there would be serious financial implications." A. Dr. Kenneth Wallace Smith.
