Thornton Law Firm was founded in 1978 by Michael Thornton and two other attorneys doing groundbreaking work for victims of mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases. Now a leading injury law firm in Massachusetts and the largest plaintiff law firm in New England, the firm has 21 attorneys representing thousands of clients in a wide variety of plaintiff-side work. Experience in complex litigation over the last four decades has led to the firm’s involvement in cases of local and national importance and recognition as one of the exceptional Massachusetts personal injury law firms.
The jury found that it was more likely than not that Johnson & Johnson’s Shower to Shower and Colgate’s Cashmere Bouquet talc powders contained the carcinogen asbestos, and that the asbestos in those powders caused Schmitz’s cancer.
The jury rejected J&J claims that there was no asbestos in its powders. Instead, the jury found the company had been aware of the presence of asbestos in talcum powder for decades, yet had failed to warn consumers.
Investors interested in serving as a lead plaintiff have until July 22, 2019 to apply. The lawsuit alleges violations of the federal securities laws, and the class has not yet been certified. Until certification occurs, you are not represented by an attorney. If you choose to take no action, you can remain an absent class member.
Congratulations to Attorney Jasmine Howard and the Boston Latin School Crew. The BL rowing team had a historic season. Aside from winning a state championship on Sunday, they became the first MA single public school to medal (silver) at NEIRAs on Saturday since 1947. NEIRA is one of the oldest scholastic sports leagues in the county and is dominated by prep schools.
Jasmine has been coaching the rowing teams at Boston Latin High School since 2013. Congratulations Jasmine!!
