As a member of those committees, he drafted discovery and legal briefs that lead to the successful resolution of the case on behalf of a nationwide class of schools seeking recovery of damages for the costs and expenses they were required to expend to assess the presence of asbestos in school buildings and to remediate under newly enacted rules and regulations of the Environmental Protection Agency, promulgated in the 1970’s. In connection with that litigation, he was one of the architects of approaching class certification issues for a nationwide class by the use of a “50” state analysis of the law, in order to demonstrate the similarity of laws and therefore the manageability of a nationwide class action.
