Court Decision Allows Lead-Paint Lawsuit to Proceed in Rhode Island
The attorney general alleged the defendants had appealed the lower-court ruling in an effort to delay the progress of the suit toward trial. "Another delay tactic by the lead-paint manufacturers has been headed off," Whitehouse said. "I am hopeful that we have seen the last of the delays and that we can now proceed to trial."
A pre-trial conference in the case was scheduled for Nov. 30.
