Mike Schag Debates Take-Home and Background Exposure


HarrisMartin’s annual Midwest Asbestos Litigation Conference in St. Louis, Missouri has been, for many years, a premier setting where members of the defense and plaintiffs’ bars, as well as the judiciary, meet to discuss issues on the cutting edge. This year’s event was held at the Four Seasons Hotel in St. Louis on September 21, and marked the fourth time, Mike Schag, co-chair of the Toxic Tort & Asbestos Practice Group at Heyl Royster, addressed its attendees.

Mike engaged the group in a lively point-counterpoint style exchange with a plaintiffs’ advocate on take-home exposure cases, discussing unsettled areas of the law and evidence-based approaches to case development. In addition, he led a debated conversation on the meaning and usage of background exposure level.
