where I said thing I meant to ask "same thing", in other words:
Is the thing for which it was too late the same one as the one for which it was too early?

Early and late: absolute time? relative time? or is it not about time at all?

Was the diagnose done by an independent doctor? A doctor appointed by the petrolium company? By the court or a lawyer?
Did the case ever go to court?
Was the specialist a cancer specialist? Was he familiar with this kind of cancer?
Was the specialist called as a wittness to the court? If so, did he tell about his findings? Could he prove it? Was he considered a credible witness?
Did someone stop or prevent any further investigations about the real cause for his cancer? If so, the company? The court? Was anything vital for the case inadmissable?
Would it take a long time to provide the link between the company and the cancer? Was the proof provided in time for the court?

does he take the company to court with someone else? one other person? if so did they have cancer as well?

so the company was found guilty? did they have to make a payment to Jack? anyone else?

Did the company still exist when it was time for court?
Did they declare bankruptcy to avoid prosecution?
Was someone else (not the company) found guilty?

did the court decide that as nobody had died of it yet there wasn't enough evidence? so once Jack died there would be evidence for future claims?

Was the link between his cancer and his exposure made while the case was still in court, or did it come after the case was dismissed?

Was there a lack of evidence leading to the link between Jack's cancer and his exposure during the trial? Was it because the trial started too early, and the evidence came too late?

A previous answer stated that "Was the proof provided in time for the court?noish or yope", current answer states "his cancer was linked to his exposure before the case went to court"...is there something within this contrast that is relevant?

Was the deadline not met, therefore the case was dismissed? Was it a technicality with this unmet deadline that the case was dismissed? Was the testimony of the expert who could link his cancer to his exposure ever used in court at all? Was the expert summoned to the trial at all?

did someone have to die before the deadline? did an action have to be performed? something have to be proved?

{Most of the facts of this puzzle are here, so I will post a little hint and if the puzzle doesn't pick up, I will go ahead and spoil.

Hint:
The case was dismissed because a deadline was not met. What kind of deadline would one need to meet in a legal proceeding?}

This thing is ready to be spoiled...

************SPOILER*****************
The Alabama Supreme Court, ruling in January, told leukemia-stricken Jack Cline that state law makes it either too early or too late for him to sue the manufacturer of benzene, to which he was exposed in his factory job, and it dismissed his lawsuit. He may have known he had been exposed to a carcinogen, but he couldn't sue until the cancer was actually diagnosed, but when it finally was, years later, the state's statute of limitations had long since run out. Several justices expressed concern about the catch-22, but they were in the minority. [New York Times, 1-14-07]


Thanks for playing! I will be posting a new puzzle shortly
