The Mississippi Supreme Court has reiterated in two separate asbestos appeals from Jefferson County that out-of-state plaintiffs will not be allowed to pursue damage claims unless the alleged injury occurred in the Magnolia State.

Going back to 2004, the state Supreme Court, in damage cases with multiple complainants and multiple defendants, has ruled that it was unfair to group the plaintiffs together when their claims did not arise from the same incident or involve the same defendants.
