Walsh v. BASF
(Pa., filed May 15, 2019): Arguing that the lower court failed to respect the discretionary rule of judicial gatekeeping when it allowed “junk science” into court room. Also arguing that Pennsylvania law has always required evidence that a particular defendant’s product has caused a plaintiff’s particular injury, not that a category of products in the “aggregate” can cause a generalized category of disease.
