PMA Perspective

  1. In this episode, David N. Taylor hosts film director Paul Johnson for a newsmaker interview about his new work, "UnSettled." According to the official "UnSettled" synopisis:

    Some call it justice, others call it the biggest American scam you've never heard of.

    When a California car dealership got sued over asbestos exposure, their lawyer expected the case to be dropped because the dealership had never used asbestos. He soon found out that facts don't always matter in the strange and secretive world of American asbestos lawsuits. In these lawsuits, it's not always clear who is really sick, how they became sick, or if it even matters.

    A true-life legal thriller, "UnSettled" follows the bogus lawsuit against a small-town car dealership all the way to Washington DC, where politicians take big money from asbestos lawyers. “UnSettled” tells the story of the public health tragedy of asbestos exposure and the cadre of wealthy lawyers who have figured out ways to keep half of all the money awarded to sick and dying people.

    Most Americans are unaware of the costly and maddening system that continues to plague victims and businesses alike. While other countries dealing with asbestos exposure have figured out how to take care of sick people without a lawsuit industry that seems to benefit lawyers the most. Some say that this controversy is about more than frivolous lawsuits and manipulating the system -- but a fraud perpetrated on the asbestos trusts by the very people who claim to represent the injured.

    "UnSettled" is an eye opener and a must see for anyone who cares about fairness in the American legal system and accountability for those who make the laws that govern it.
