UK Insurer Gets Partial Victory in Asbestos Case

Reuters reports that Aviva, an insurer, and the government wanted to stop pay-outs for pleural plaques.

Holland slashed the level of compensation to be awarded, ruling that provisional damages should be between 3,500 and 4,000 pounds rather than the previous range of 5,000 to 7,000 and final damages should be between 6,000 and 7,000 pounds compared with the previous range of 12,500 to 20,000.
