Jeffrey Pollock was featured in The American Lawyer Article, “Big Suits.” Full text can be found in the October 29, 2014, issue, but a synopsis is below.

An unusual class action was revived, alleging that BASF Catalysts LLC and its lawyers at Cahill Gordon & Reindel lied about asbestos contamination at an Engelhard-owned talc mine in Vermont to minimize the company's asbestos liability.

Fox attorney Jeffrey Pollock brought the case on behalf of asbestos claimants who had previously dropped lawsuits against BASF for lack of evidence. They are seeking an injunction that will effectively force BASF and Cahill to admit to document destruction.
