Today, July 3, 2017, California’s State Assembly will vote on a new law that could dramatically change the way depositions proceed in some asbestos actions filed in California.

SB 632 was introduced by Senate Majority Leader Bill Monning (D-Santa Cruz) in February of this year and is sponsored by the Consumer Attorneys of California.

The bill would impose on defense counsel a presumptive seven-hour time limit to complete the deposition of any asbestos plaintiff who meets the requirements generally considered for preferential trial setting in California.
