According to the Center for Legal Policy, “Asbestos litigation is the longest, most expensive mass tort in U.S. history, involving more than 8,000 defendants and 700,000 claimants.” Nevertheless, with the use of a Case Management Order (CMO) and/or Pre-Trial Order (PTO), asbestos litigation can be streamlined efficiently.
Case Management Order’s play an integral role in resolving complex cases, especially cases like asbestos litigation. Within an order, timelines, discovery referees, mediators, and electronic service providers are designated to facilitate the resolution at a much quicker rate.
Ideally, the goal of any litigation is to settle a case before it reaches trial. As a result, expediting the management and service of documents is essential. Rather than hoping to receive case documents and scrambling to respond in time, legal E-Service provider eliminate this issue. Serving documents instantaneously allow litigants to react faster which minimizes most setbacks in any given litigation.
