The ARTRA Asbestos Trust was organized to process, liquidate, and pay all valid asbestos personal injury claims for which ARTRA has legal responsibility. The Trust was created in 2007 as a result of the confirmation of the ARTRA Group Chapter 11 Joint Plan of Reorganization (the “Plan”). The purpose of the Trust is to provide fair, equitable and substantially similar treatment for all PI Trust claims that may presently exist or may arise in the future in substantially the same manner.
