W.R. Grace gets more time in Libby asbestos case
Montana’s News Station.com, 2/25/08)

Lawyers with W.R. Grace are getting more time to file an appeal to the United States Supreme Court, as well as to perhaps settle pre-trial issues in the government’s criminal case dealing with Libby asbestos.

If the high court accepts the case, then it would make a final ruling on whether the government can use certain evidence at trial.

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that the evidence can be used and W.R. Grace is expected to ask the high court to review that decision.

Originally the company had until next week to file its petition, but Justice Anthony Kennedy has granted an extension until April 14th.

It’s now been more than three years since the U.S. government filed criminal charges against W.R. Grace.
