Lone Pine orders are case management orders issued in large toxic tort cases that require claimants to come forward with prima facie injury, exposure, and causation evidence by a date certain—or else face dismissal.
Lone Pine orders are quite common, but they are frequently unpublished. Since they are so often unpublished, research into the orders has, historically, been resource-intensive and difficult. To address this difficulty, this website collects and catalogs dozens of previously-unavailable Lone Pine orders, from state and federal courts across the United States.
