I haven't done a really careful look, but they've at least removed the references to the site being a resource since 1995.
They've also updated the disclaimer and it's much more detailed and, in my view, a much clearer statement:
Asbestos.com is currently being sponsored by Brent Coon and Associates, LLC and The Peterson Firm, LLC. Brent Coon and Associates, whose principal office is located at 3550 Fannin Street, Beaumont, TX 77701 , has attorneys licensed to practice in numerous states throughout the country and has 17 offices located from coast to coast. The Peterson Firm's office is located at: 20 N. Orange Ave - Suite 400, Orlando, Florida 32801. The Peterson Firm is licensed by the Florida Bar Association to practice law within the state of Florida. If the Brent Coon and Associates or the Peterson Firm undertakes representation of a client it may do so with assistance of co-counsel in the state where the case is filed. Neither Brent Coon and Associates or The Peterson Firm will share any personal information with any other party, with the exception that in certain circumstances you may be contacted directly by co-counsel for the purpose of evaluating a potential claim. Asbestos.com, Brent Coon and Associates and The Peterson Firm are separate and distinct entities. Asbestos.com is in part owned by an attorney concentrating in asbestos litigation.
Note the final sentence in particular.
Update: The site has reverted to the prior design and language. Mr. Apelado wrote me this morning, saying that this is a technical issue but that the reversion to the previous version of the site is temporary.
