Lancaster County Court of Common Pleas
OPINION | “A lawsuit, at its core, is an exercise in belief. Given few uncontested facts, judges and jurors must hear those facts, listen to the arguments for and against, the witnesses and the experts and decide who or what to believe in.
“Lawyers long to be believed by juries and believed in by potential clients. Their paychecks and reputations depend on it.
“But it’s hard to believe what is happening in Lancaster, where more than 30 lawsuits ask whether conditions at the Armstrong World Industries plant, once the city’s largest employer, have caused the serious illnesses and deaths of those who worked there.”
