Good Guys Win: Welding Case could influence thousands of other cases...

A jury ruled that welding rod manufacturers are not liable for the health problems a worker allegedly developed after being exposed to welding fumes at his job. His lawsuit claimed the exposure caused him to suffer from manganese poisoning, a disease with symptoms similar to Parkinson's. The ruling could influence thousands of other cases, but a plaintiffs' spokesman noted that "The vast majority of cases filed against the welding industry are far stronger than this one."
