AOJ Bill of Interest

AB 2136 (Bonta): This bill codifies a “risk contribution” theory of liability which allows those poisoned by lead-based paint, who are unable to identify the exact manufacturer of the lead paint pigment, a new avenue to litigate cases they may not otherwise be able to litigate. AB 2136 is set to be heard in the Senate Judiciary Committee on July 3. CSAC supports this measure.
