Manville Trust Transparency – Data from David Austern
In the good old days, there was more asbestos trust transparency as to overall statistics for the Manville Trust. One reason for the transparency was presentations by David Austern at asbestos litigation conferences. As an example, consider this detailed set of data showing claims by disease for the “pre-1995 period” up through 2001. The data was presented at the 2002 Mealey’s Asbestos Bankruptcy Conference.
