John Crane says Ford lawyers' asbestos sanctions motion a 'witch hunt' to advance 'implausible conspiracy theory'

A manufacturer named as a defendant in about 75,000 asbestos personal injury cases nationwide has pushed back against a request for sanctions from lawyers representing Ford Motor Company, who have accused their client of being a “shill” to prevent other defendants from transferring cases out of Cook County Circuit Court, saying Ford has no basis to support an “implausible conspiracy theory” serving as a pretense for the chance to fish for privileged information.
