In ruling on defendant's motion for reconsideration, the Rhode Island Superior Court has held it will do an in camera review of plaintiff's bankruptcy trust claims forms to determine if they are discoverable to support defendant's theory that the forms may contradict plaintiff's decedent's testimony about exposure to its products.  However, the Court affirmed its prior ruling that the claims forms are not discoverable to show decendent's exposure to defendant's products was not a substantial causative factor in the development of his disease.
