Beasley Allen managing shareholder Tom Methvin talks to The Law Business Insider about asbestos and mesothelioma. Many people are surprised to learn that asbestos is still not completely banned in the United States. Asbestos is responsible for causing mesothelioma, which is a deadly and incurable form of cancer. In his interview with host Steve Murphy, Methvin discusses efforts to pass legislation in the United States Congress to ban asbestos in America. In addition to the discussion of mesothelioma and asbestos, Methvin talks about the issue of arbitration and preemption, which would eliminate a person’s right to trial by jury and protect big industry.
