Put the New York Court of Appeals’ Oct. 17 decision in Parker v. Mobil Oil Corp., 2006 N.Y. Slip Op. 07391 (N.Y. Ct. App. Oct. 17, 2006), 2006 N.Y. Lexis 3188, on your radar screen. Do not label this as yet another toxic tort case. Like a stealth bomber, it has some potential to evade close scrutiny yet deliver an explosive payload.

In what, at first glance, seems like just another disease-causation case with its own set of facts, upon further study Parker yields up quite a few practical insights. Certainly, if you are an attorney fortunate enough to battle in the sophisticated toxic tort arena, Parker is of obvious relevance.
