Georgia – Asbestos Trades –Asbestos Mesothelioma Lawsuit

'Take home' liability could mean limitless liability for asbestos defendants
3/20/2009 12:28 PM By Staff Reports 

During a recent gathering of asbestos legal professionals, aBeverly Hills conference focused on one central theme in emerging litigation trends: a new generation of problems -- connected to the last -- will mean a new wave of cases against a new slate of defendants.

With more than three decades past since the peak ofasbestosmanufacturing and use in theU.S., the focus of lawsuits has shifted to what is often called "secondary exposure cases." These cases are filed on behalf of a new slate of plaintiffs, many a generation removed from those that comprised the height ofasbestos litigation in the late 1990s when hundreds of thousands of cases were filed each year.

Likewise, the defendants include new businesses, most at least a step removed from the manufacturers, shipyards and refineries already forced into bankruptcy under the weight of billions paid in legal settlements.

With many of the first wave of plaintiffs deceased, and the businesses they sued bankrupt, it is no surprise the vast industry of asbestos lawyers would now be uncovering new cases along previously un-trod trails.

One such trail emerging as a potential highway of asbestos cases is take home liability cases. Commonly, these plaintiffs include everyone from children and spouses of those who worked around asbestos, babysitters who entered the employee's home, or independent contractors who worked with products containing asbestos.

Texas plaintiff attorneyShepard Hoffman described one form of take home liability extending "to those who regularly and repeatedly came in to contact with employees' work clothing consistently over a period of time."

New York attorney JohnCanoni said defendants in these cases have taken notice, raising in court their serious concern over the "specter of limitless liability."

New cases, new plaintiffs

The legal war over how courts will interpret the limits and legal responsibility in take home liability cases is now pitched in state-by-state battles. Some states, likeWashington,Tennessee,New Jersey andLouisiana have ruled that companies have a duty to protect and warn those who may become exposed to asbestos beyond their own employees, according toChicago defense attorney Jonathon Lively.

Others, notably,New York,Georgia,Kentucky,Texas,Michigan andDelaware have ruled against such duty. Many states, includingIllinois - and in whichMadisonCounty continues to be one of the larger asbestos dockets in the country -- are still hearing the cases that will determine the eventual legal precedence.

The cases that are setting the stage offer a glimpse into the next generation of clients.

"The housewife is the number one occupation listed for those now contractingmesothelioma,"West Virginia plaintiff attorney AnneKearse said.

ATennessee case involved a woman who died at the age of 24 after being exposed to asbestos from her father's work clothes. The woman was born premature and spent three months in the hospital where her father would come and hold her every day on his way home from work,Lively said.

Another case involves a plaintiff who was exposed to asbestos as a child from wrestling around with his father after work.

Canoni cited one of the most recent cases, a ruling from the Delaware Supreme Court earlier this month. Lillian Riedel sued ICI Americas, Inc., her husband's employer for nearly 30 years, for failing to warn her of the dangers of asbestos exposure from her husband's clothing.

"Does the employer owe a duty of care to the injured party who they may or may not have ever known, nor ever employed?"Canoni said.

According to court documents, the court ruled against Riedel, grantingICI's request for summary judgment "on the basis that ICI and Mrs. Riedel did not share a legally significant relationship that would create a duty ICI owed to her."

But that legal victory of the defense inDelaware is offset by plaintiff victories along similar lines in other states, notablyWashington.

Lawyers G. William Shaw and Michael K. Ryan wrote, "In a pair of closely watched asbestos cases, theWashington Court of Appeals on January 29, 2007 greatly expanded the duty to warn in asbestos cases."

The twin rulings in favor of plaintiffs found that a product manufacturer whose products do not include any asbestos is still responsible for exposure if the normal use of the product would cause them to become exposed from another source.

The court ruling "may have a direct impact on defendant manufacturers whose products may have required the use of asbestos-containing products to function properly," they wrote, which in turn, greatly expands the company's duty to warn about the exposure to asbestos. The ruling also greatly increases the pool of defendants that can be named inWashington asbestos cases.

Potential liability in states where duty to warn is expanded could soon extend to babysitters, school teachers and neighbors who could have been exposed by someone who worked around asbestos, according to asbestos conference presenters. The number of businesses who could be sued in asbestos cases is also greatly expanded, even to the point of including "mom and pop stores," one presenter at the conference said.

The cases with extended duty to warn are cropping up in asbestos dockets across the country. A brief review of cases filed recently inMadisonCounty, shows the subtle shift to the next generation of plaintiffs.

For example, among the 13 cases filed inMadisonCounty in a single week in February, few are direct lawsuits on behalf of a sick worker suing a former employer. One such example involves a lawsuit filed by Christine Warner ofTennessee on behalf of her mother who developedmesothelioma during her work as a seamstress at House of Fashions inMemphis for more than 30 years.

But most are less specific as to when and where the person was exposed to asbestos, likely built on duty to warn case law.

Pat Montgomery ofKentucky claims he developedmesothelioma after helping his father on the family farm for six years during the 1950s. AnIllinois woman claimed in her suit filed inMadisonCounty that she developedmesothelioma after being exposed through her husband.

Defending the case

The most important steps in defending against take home liability often occur early on in how the case is framed by the courts, according to Lively. The duty to warn is often determined by whether the court sees the case as one of misfeasance, poor action to warn, or nonfeasance, no action to warn.

"How a case gets framed in front of the court is going to greatly determine how it is going to end up," Lively said during the asbestos conference.

TheDelaware ruling involving Lillian Riedel, Lively said, was an example of the court assessing the failure to warn as nonfeasance, essentially ruling they had no duty to warn her of the potential exposure from her husband's work clothes.

Other cases where courts have ruled the company had a duty to warn and acted poorly to do so have led to plaintiff victories, the case of the 24-year-old woman fromTennessee for example,Lively said.

The outcomes of these cases differ greatly from state to state.

Hoffman said that despite the changing nature of the cases, juries still focus on the plaintiff and the harm done to them.

"Juries want to find a way to help out a family," he said, arguing that plaintiff attorneys must simply show the "contributing factors to a person contractingmesothelioma," and "the basis to hold the initiating company responsible."

Companies knew the dangers of asbestos, even on clothing leaving the plant for decades, Hoffman said, citing examples of safety measures that were commonplace.

"A study in 1913 discusses worker safety, of the need for lockers and showers and a change of clothes for workers before going home," Hoffman said.

While defense attorneys often point to 1972, when OSHA issued protocols to be followed regarding asbestos exposure,Kearse said that premise can be challenged in court.

"There's a lot of information out before OSHA,"Kearse said, starting with a report in 1937 that talks about safety policies related to asbestos.

"It was known and knowable how dangerous this was to work with," she said. "West Virginia had regulations in place since 1951, but it was rarely followed, if at all."

Georgia – Second Hand Exposure – Mesothelioma Verdict

Secondhand Asbestos

By Chung,Huhnsik,Voses, Marc S
Publication: Risk Management
Date: Tuesday, July 1 2008

Asbestos litigation has come a long way since the case ofBoret v.Fibreboard Paper Products Corp. was filed inBeaumont,Texas in 1966. Recent analysis of asbestos liabilities indicates a downward trend. Towers Perrin reported that insured asbestos losses increased in 2006 by approximately $1.9 billion,

but that increase was comparatively lower than the increases of $10.2 billion in 2003, $7.3 billion in 2004 and $7.0 billion in 2005. Similarly, a November 2007 A.M. Best report indicates that the insurance industry's asbestos losses have peaked.

New developments, however, may stimulate another wave of asbestos litigation seeking to hold employers liable for the secondhand asbestos exposure of employees' household members. secondhand exposure claims are asserted not by people exposed to asbestos dust and fibers while working, but by household members who allege that they contracted an asbestos-related disease from asbestos brought into the home on the clothes or body of family members whose exposure occurred at the workplace. Verdicts in this area, coupled with a lack of unanimity at the state court with respect to employers' liability for secondhand exposure, may provide fertile ground for future lawsuits.

In 2005, aTexas jury awarded $25.7 million to a woman who allegedlydevelopedmesothelioma as a result of laundering her husband's asbestos-laden work clothes. The jury found that the employer acted with gross negligence in failing to protect its workers and their household members against asbestos exposure. They awarded her $13.7 million in compensatory damages and $12 million in punitive damages.

Similarly, a secondhand exposure lawsuit in aNew Jersey state court resulted in a February 2008 jury award of $30.3 million to the family of MarkButtitta whodied frommesothelioma. During trial, attorneys for theButtitta family argued that he was exposed to asbestos while working summers at an auto parts warehouse and in his home from asbestos fibers that clung to his father's and brothers' work clothes. WhileButtitta may have been exposed to asbestos in the workplace, his secondhand household exposure claim also made it to the jury. These cases and others like them are significant because they represent a shift from the typical asbestos plaintiff.

This shift in asbestos plaintiffs is highlighted by the case of Amanda Satterfield whosuccumbed tomesothelioma at the age of 25. From all indications, she was never exposed to asbestos in a workplace. Satterfield's attorneys argued that her father, who hauled asbestos beginning in 1973, inadvertently brought asbestos fibers that clung to his work clothes into their home. The case has made its way to the Tennessee Supreme Court, which heard oral arguments in early this year. Satterfield's case begs the question: how many other people in their 20s or 30s have active or latent asbestos related diseases from secondhand household exposure?

While there were also prior secondhand exposure cases, these recent ones provide fodder for the ongoing legal debate as to whether liability should extend to claims by workers' household members who develop asbestos-related diseases from secondhand exposure. Prior cases demonstrate that courts facing this issue are divided. For example, courts inNew Jersey,Louisiana andTexas have held that the danger to household members from secondhand exposure was foreseeable and employers may be held liable for resulting injuries. On the other hand, courts inNew York andGeorgia have found that employers have no liability for asbestos-related injuries from secondhand exposure. Moreover, the absence of case law on the issue of employer liability for the secondhand exposure of household members in many states provides plaintiffs with an abundance of venues in which to bring suit.

The development of case law and verdicts in secondhand exposure lawsuits will be the determining factor as to whether these cases gain sufficient momentum to be deemed a new phase in the history of asbestos litigation. Studies may indicate that asbestos-related liabilities are down, but do not count them out just yet.
