Court Victory Protects The Constitutional Rights of All Texans - A Tribute to Our Client John Robinson
Mundy & Singley proudly announce a major court victory protecting the rights of all Texans with a favorable ruling on behalf of deceased mesothelioma client John Robinson and his family in the Texas Supreme Court. Mr. Robinson was a career Navy man, and died of cancer caused by breathing asbestos from products used in the boiler rooms of his Navy ships. After Mundy & Singley filed a case for Mr. Robinson, one of the companies in the case (Crown Cork & Seal) had a law passed in the Texas Legislature taking away his right to have his day in court against them. Mundy & Singley challenged the law as contrary to the Texas Constitution's Bill of Rights, which forbids the Legislature from passing "retroactive" laws - a legal term for laws that eliminate rights that a person already has.
