EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. - The tenuous connection between an asbestos action and a defendant's bankruptcy cannot provide a basis for federal jurisdiction, an Illinois federal judge held in remanding the case on April 24 (Jason Bode, et al. v. Aerco International Inc., et al., No. 13-1310, S.D. Ill.; 2014 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 57598).
