Payday Report

Feb 29, 2024

This week, as part of our podcast, Payday Report spoke to Lori Knapp and her lawyer, Jon Ruschdeki, who have been involved in a 6-year lawsuit against Koch Industries-owned Georgia Pacific but have yet to see their day in court.

The lawsuit stems from her father Ed Chapman's death in 2020 from mesothelioma. Her father contracted the disease as a construction worker working with drywall containing asbestos for Koch Industries-owned Georgia Pacific.

In 2018, her father sued Koch Industries for damages. He died in 2020, and his daughter, Lori, has taken on his case, but six years later, using a bankruptcy process called the “Texas Two-Step,” the case has yet to see its day in court.
