Libby asbestos claims are overwhelming courts in Montana. Now, the Montana Supreme Court has appointed six additional Asbestos Claim Court judges to handle the overflow of claims pending.
In 2015, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced their final plans to clean up the asbestos within Libby, Montana. Libby is considered an Asbestos Superfund site by the EPA, meaning it is some of the nation's most contaminated land. Asbestos poses a threat to residents living in Libby.
