The return of Ray Harron

Ray Harron is back. Dr. Harron is well-known to lawyers who handle asbestos cases. He's the West Virginia radiologist who made a fortune and a reputation as a reader of mass quantities of lung x-rays for asbestos and silicosis claimants. (This is Ray Anthony Harron of Bridgeport, WV -- not to be confused with Roanoke neurologist Raymond V. Harron.)

According to the West Virginia State Journal, Harron this year finally filed responsive pleadings in a federal case where he is accused of racketeering and fraud. He had been "missing" for months as defendants sought to serve him with the suit papers. The Madison Record suggests that his "reappearance" took place in November.
