The Cook County Record Now Exists
Finally – we’ve hit the mass tort big time here in Chicago. Cook County lawsuits are now the subject of the Cook County Record, an apparent sibling to the other similar "record" publications controlled by an arm of the US Chamber of Commerce. One presumes there is a relationship to Cook County recently being deemed an even more dangerous near hellhole that sits on a "watch list."
Maybe this means our local plaintiff’s asbestos lawyers (Cooney & Conway and Terry Johnson) can no longer slide under the radar quite so often. For years, Chicago defense firms were frustrated that they did not turn Chicago into a hellhole many years ago. (gentle humor intended for all sides)
