City Lead Paint Law Open to Interpretation

Lawyers and advocates involved with lead
poison litigation are divided over whether New
York City's new lead paint law, scheduled to
take effect in November, will affect current and
future tort claims.

BY MICHAEL A. RICCARDI

THE LEAD-PAINT bill, signed into law this month by
Mayor Giuliani and scheduled to take effect in November,
may significantly alter the playing field in lead poison
litigation.

Or it may not.

There is no agreement among lawyers and
advocates on both sides of the issue on how the new law
might affect current and future tort claims.
