Re: Admissibility of Evidence
I think the answer is yes, the manufacturer will
be able to offer the information which you've referenced as evidence in a suit in which it finds itself a defendant for alleged asbestos exposure, but, of course, until the case is before a particular judge in a particular forum,
and this particular matter is then raised, no one will know for sure.
