Two Pittsburgh asbestos lawyers liable in fraud cases - Pittsburgh Post-Gazette


 Two Pittsburgh attorneys, as well as a doctor they hired to read X-rays, were found liable by a federal civil jury in West Virginia for violating the federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act and for state-law fraud over 11 fraudulent asbestos claims by railroad employees against CSX Transportation.

On Friday, the jury in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of West Virginia awarded $429,240.47, which was the amount CSX said it spent to defend 11 claims it said exemplified a wider practice.
