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. After fighting for more than 6 years in the courts, including two appeals, Mundy & Singley successfully vindicated the rights of Mr. Robinson and all Texans. The Court set forth a new way to analyze the relevant part of the Texas Bill of Rights and stressed its importance in protecting all Texans from improper laws. We are thrilled to have this victory for all Texans be in the name of our client Mr. Robinson. The opinion of the Texas Supreme Court is available here:
