Ohio – Asbestos Exposure – $2 Million Asbestos Award

Family of mill worker who died from asbestos exposure awarded $2 million

ByBobbyKerlik
PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Wednesday, February 3, 2010

AnAlleghenyCounty jury awarded the family of aPlum man whodied from asbestos exposure$2 million.

The jury returned a $50 million verdict last week in favor of the BarryBaumener estate and against 25 companies named as defendants after a two-week trial. All of the companies except one —Oglebay Norton Co. ofOhioand its division, Ferro Engineering — settled out of court,Baumener's attorney, John Kane, said.

Ferro will have to pay $2 million because the jury ordered each of the 25 defendants to pay 4 percent of the total. The 24 companies who settled out of court are immune to the jury's verdict.

Attorneys for Ferro could not be reached for comment.

Baumener was diagnosed withmesothelioma, a cancer of the lining of the lungs, in April and died in October. He was 62, Kane said.

Baumener worked for Carpenter Technology, a steel mill inReading. He sued several companies in May, including Ferro, alleging that the company sold asbestos-containing products to the mill where he worked.

Baumener and his wife, Marsha, moved from theirReading home into his daughter'sPlum home after his diagnosis.

"I think the jury understood the severity of the injury and the devastation on the entire family," Kane said.

Kane declined to say how much the family settled for in the other cases but said it was far less than $50 million.

Ohio – Asbestos Legislation – Asbestos Trusts

Congressman seeks GAO probe of asbestos trusts
4/30/2010 9:10 AM By ChrisRizo

Smith

WASHINGTON - U.S. Rep. Lamar Smith, the leading Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, on Thursday asked the director of the Government Accountability Office to investigate the secrecy behind trusts created to payasbestos-related claimsagainst bankrupt companies.

In his letter to Acting U.S. Comptroller General GeneDodaro, the Texas Republican expressed concerns that the trusts -- created under 11 USC �524(g), through the Bankruptcy Reform Act of 1994 -- operate in secrecy, which leads to fraudulent injury claims including double-dipping.

He noted that the U.S. Bankruptcy Code has a presumption in favor of public access to information filed in bankruptcy cases.

"I believe that this principle of openness is no longer being fully implemented for 524(g) trusts, undermining both the tort system and the asbestos trust system," Smith wrote.

Congress intended the asbestos trust system be there to ensure that all present and future claimants have equal access to payments for asbestos-related injuries, he said. But recent litigation, media accounts and legal scholarship indicate that a lack of transparency may be undermining the trust system, he added.

A 2008 article in the Norton Journal of Bankruptcy, he said, shows that the connection between trusts and tort litigation results in overpayments. The trusts have more than $30 billion in assets, experts say.

Critics say the asbestos trust system is unfairly enriching trial lawyers, who have been caught filing claims with multiple trusts on behalf of a single plaintiff.

Smith said some of the trusts appear structured and operated to block attempts to get information about trust claimants who seek money from multi-524(g) trusts or who are suing other solvent defendants.

"This lack of transparency appears to foster dishonest claims practices and encourage claimants and their attorneys to seek duplicative payments by concealing trust recoveries increase the financial burden on solvent tort defendants and other asbestos trusts and thereby unfairly reduce the compensation available to deserving present and future claimants," Smith said.

He pointed to an oft-cited 2007 instance inOhio, where inCuyahogaCounty theCalifornia law firm ofBrayton Purcell claimed the late HarryKanania died in 2000 ofmesothelioma solely from smoking cigarettes made by Lorillard Tobacco, while simultaneously seeking compensation from multiple asbestos trusts, claiming their products led toKanania's fatal lung condition.

Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas Judge Harry Hannaultamately revoked theBrayton Purcell firm's admission to the court, citing the firm's legal and ethical lapses in theKanania case.

"Similar efforts have been discovered in other cases," Smith noted in his letter to the GAO director, adding that the discoveries indicate that "greater transparency likely is needed throughout the entire asbestos trust system."

In an interview last year with LegalNewsline, Lester Brickman, a professor at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law in New York and widely regarded as the nation's leading asbestos legal scholar, said the 524(g) trusts are controlled almost exclusively by plaintiffs' attorneys who profit the most from them.

"The trusts operate as private kingdoms run exclusively by plaintiffs' lawyers except for the (Johns Manville Corp.) trust," Brickman said. "All of the other trusts are piggybanks owned by the plaintiffs' lawyers who can write the rules, or rewrite the rules, according to their needs."

Asbestos Fibers – Asbestos Medical – Asbestos Fibers in Human Cells

 

How Asbestos Fibers Trigger CancerIn Human Cells

 

ScienceDaily (Dec. 22, 2008) — Ohio State University scientists believe they are the first in the world to study the molecular underpinnings of cancer by probing individual bonds between anasbestos fiberand human cells.

 

Though any clinical application is years away, theresearchers hope their findings could aid in drug development efforts targeting illnesses caused by excessive exposure to asbestos, including the deadly cancer calledmesothelioma.

 

The researchers use atomic force microscopy to observe how a singleasbestos fiber binds with a specific receptor protein on cell surfaces. They suspect that at least one of the more lethal forms of asbestos triggers a cascade of events inside cells that eventually lead to illness, sometimes decades later.

 

The conditions most commonly associated with long-term exposure to airborne asbestos are lung cancer; asbestosis, a chronic respiratory disease; andmesothelioma, a cancer that forms in the membrane lining most internal organs of the body, including the lungs.

 

Eric Taylor, a doctoral candidate in earth sciences at Ohio State and a coauthor of the study, describes atomic force microscopy as “Braille on a molecular level,” meaning it allows scientists to feel and observe what’s happening on molecular surfaces.

 

“We’re looking at what molecules are involved in the chain of events when the fiber touches the cell. Does the binding occur over minutes, or hours? And what processes are triggered?” said Taylor, who presented the research at the American Geophysical Union meeting inSan Francisco.

 

Asbestos comprises six different minerals that naturally occur in both fragment and fibrous forms. Because of its high durability and heat resistance, the fibrous form has been used in many manufacturing products since the late 1800s. Though its use is now highly regulated, asbestos is still present in many materials. The U.S. Department of Labor estimates that 1.3 million employees face significant asbestos exposure on the job. Environmental exposure is also possible because asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral in soils and exposed bedrock.   

 

Crocidolite, or blue asbestos, is part of the amphibole group of asbestos minerals, which were banned in most of the Western world by the mid-1980s. Before that, they were used in such products as ceiling tiles and thermal insulation.

 

OhioState researchers have focused so far on thecrocidolite form of asbestos, but eventually hope to study how all six forms of asbestos interact with certain proteins on cell surfaces. Some forms of asbestos can dissolve in the lungs if they are inhaled, but others are believed to essentially “stick” to cells, especially at high concentrations, and eventually cause lung diseases.

 

“For the first time, this will give us data on biological activity that should help policymakers determine which forms of asbestos are the most dangerous,” said Steven Lower, associate professor of earth sciences atOhioState and a coauthor on the study.

 

“The hypothesis we’re testing is that binding of cell surface receptors toasbestos fibers triggers a signal event, which initiates the cancer,” saidLower, also a faculty member in theSchool ofEnvironment and Natural Resources. “There seems to be something intrinsic about certain types of asbestos, blue asbestos in particular, that elicits a unique signal, and it triggers inflammation, the formation of pre-malignant cells and, ultimately, cancer.”

 

The first protein to be studied is epidermal growth factor receptor, which is present on the surface of every human cell. Understanding the intricacies of the binding process between the mineral and one or more proteins will provide an index of the biological activity of a particular type of asbestos, and might lead the researchers to figure out how to prevent or undo that interaction,Lower said.

 

Taylor said the driving motivation behind the research is the potential to find a way to intervene and prevent illness even after someone is exposed to asbestos. Mesothelioma symptoms don’t typically appear until 30 to 50 years after exposure. After diagnosis, however, the cancer is difficult to control, and there is no cure.

This work is supported by the National Science Foundation.

 

Taylor and Lower conducted the research with Ann Wylie of theUniversity ofMaryland and Brooke Mossman of theUniversity ofVermont.

Ohio – Asbestos Exposure –Mesothelioma Second Hand Exposure

Ohio nurse contracts Mesothelioma through second-hand exposure, suit claims 

9/19/2008 6:27 AM By KellyHolleran

 

AnOhio woman recentlydiagnosed with Mesothelioma filed an asbestos suit against 13 defendant corporations claiming the disease was wrongfully caused.

Kathy Castle claims she was diagnosed with the disease May 19, according to a lawsuit filed Sept. 15 in Madison County Circuit Court.

Castle says she worked from 1970 until 2008 as a nurse's aide, home nurse, secretary, clerical worker and clerk at various locations, according to the lawsuit.

She claims she contracted Mesothelioma through second-hand exposure to asbestos fibers her family members would carry home on their clothes.

Kim Fleming, one family member, worked from 1977 until 1981 as a construction worker and mason assistant at various locations, according to the complaint.

Another family member, Donald Young, worked from 1972 until 1977 as plastic manufacturing
plant worker at various locations, the suit states. 

Castle states her exposure was foreseeable and should have been anticipated by the defendants, according to the lawsuit.

She claims her disease was caused after she was exposed to and inhaled, ingested or otherwise absorbed asbestos fibers. 

Castle alleges the asbestos-related disease has disabled and disfigured her and has and will continue to compel her to expend and become liable for large sums of money for hospital, medical, and other health and services necessary for the treatment of the disease. Castle also has and will continue to experience great physical pain and mental anguish as a result of the disease, he claims in the lawsuit.

Mesothelioma hindered and prevented Castle from pursuing his normal course of employment, according to the suit. 

As a result, she lost large sums of money, she claims.

In the two-count lawsuit, Castle seeks sums in excess of $50,000 and compensatory damages in excess of $50,000.

She also seeks punitive damages in an amount sufficient to punish the defendants for their misconduct and to deter similarly situated parties from committing like acts of misconduct in the future.

She is represented by Robert Phillips and Perry J. Browder ofSimmonscooper LLC inEast Alton.

Ohio – Mesothelioma Lawsuit

Four asbestos lawsuits filed in Kanawha Circuit

Jun 30, 2006 | www.wvrecord.com

 

Two attorneys each filed two lawsuits in Kanawha Circuit Court last week.

One lawyer filed his lawsuits June 22 on behalf of Albert and Chestene Miller and David Murray.

The Millers name 107 defendants in their lawsuits. Albert Miller was a laborer with the United Steel Workers Association Local 721, working at an industrial site in Kenova that was "owned and operated by various entities including U.S. Steel Chemical, Aristech and Novamont Chemical.

Miller, ofProctorville,Ohio, has, a lung disease related to asbestos exposure. His wife is suing for loss of consortium.

They are seeking compensatory and punitive damages, as isMurray.

Murray, 59, was the son of James Murray, who worked at a Wheeling Pittsburg Steel plant in Benwood. David Murray says he was exposed to asbestos fibers that his father brought home on his clothes and has asbestosis andmesothelioma.

Murray, ofBellaire,Ohio, names 108 defendants.

The other lawyer is representing Walter and Carolyn Donat and Paul and Mildred Hunt. Their lawsuits were filed jointly and name 42 defendants.

It says the plaintiffs worked as laborers and welders from 1969-1996 and were frequently exposed to asbestos fibers.

Both wives are suing for loss of consortium. Both cases seek compensatory and punitive damages.

Visiting judges will be assigned the cases.

Ohio – Asbestos Company – Asbestos Bankruptcy Fund

OwensCorning Bankruptcy Plan Includes $5 Billion Asbestos Fund

Building products maker Owens Corning will pay more than $5 billion to asbestos claimants and as much as $2.27 billion to holders of bank debt as part of a plan to exit federal bankruptcy protection.

The asbestos claimants, creditors and other parties agreed to the plan that would see Owens Corning emerge from more than five years of bankruptcy protection this fall, company lawyer Norman Pernick told a bankruptcy court.

Essentially, the plan shifts the $7 billion in asbestos liabilities off the books of Owens Corning and into a trust that will be established for the plaintiffs.

Owens Corning will pay cash and shares worth more than $5.2 billion into the trust, making it one of the biggest asbestos settlements inU.S. history, said John D. Cooney, whoseChicago law firm, Cooney & Conway, represents the asbestos plaintiffs.

After the plan is approved, "we're asbestos-free,'' Pernick said.

The plan, which has an effective date of Oct. 30, would enable the company to exit bankruptcy with a value of $5.86 billion, according to a settlement sheet obtained by The Associated Press. Existing equity would be wiped out and 131.4 million shares of new stock will be issued.

Shareholders would be given warrants allowing them to buy 5 percent of the company at $45.25 per share for seven years. Bondholders will get 26.6 million of the 131.4 million new shares and warrants to buy an additional 72.9 million shares at $30 per share.

TheToledo,Ohio-based company sought Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in 2000 in an effort to shield itself from claims for billions of dollars in damages linked to health-endangering asbestos products it made decades ago.

The plan, filed in December, follows years of litigation between attorneys for asbestos claimants, owners of the company's bank debt and others.

The U.S. Supreme Court recently declined to hear an appeal of another plan that would have lumped together the company's assets. Earlier reorganization proposals failed because of disputes between creditors.

Under the original version of the plan, shareholders would have gotten nothing.

Shareholders and some creditors had been hoping for legislation that would set up a national trust to take over asbestos liabilities from companies such as Owens Corning. But a bill that would have established the $140 billion victims' fund was defeated in the U.S. Senate in February, though supporters have vowed to revive it.

Asbestos is a commercial name for minerals that were commonly used in insulation, fireproofing and wallboard materials, and automotive brakes until the 1970s. Asbestos particles, when inhaled, can cause lung scarring, breathing problems, cancer or heart failure.

If approved by the court and creditors, the new plan could mean a windfall for hedge funds that own most of Owens Corning's bank debt.

Holders of about $1.5 billion in bank debt would be paid as much as $2.27 billion in cash, including interest.

Bankruptcy court Judge Judith K. Fitzgerald scheduled a hearing July 10 to review a disclosure statement that outlines the plan.

The proposal then would be sent to creditors for a vote before a confirmation hearing set for Sept. 18.

Owens Corning has agreed to pay $4.29 billion in cash into a trust for asbestos claimants, plus 28.6 million shares of equity in the reorganized company.

"Although nothing can ever repair the loss of lives that has occurred, today's settlement represents a fair resolution for both the victims and Owens Corning,'' Cooney said in a statement.

Anthony L. Gray, an attorney for the shareholders, said he and his clients were pleased with the deal.

"We think that it's a very good result for the holders of the preferred securities and the equity security holders,'' he said. "This was a major step forward for us.''

Ohio - $12 Million Verdict Mesothelioma Death

Family of mill worker who died from asbestos exposure awarded $2 million

ByBobbyKerlik
PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Wednesday, February 3, 2010

AnAlleghenyCounty jury awarded the family of aPlum man who died from asbestos exposure $2 million.

The jury returned a $50 million verdict last week in favor of the BarryBaumener estate and against 25 companies named as defendants after a two-week trial. All of the companies except one —Oglebay Norton Co. of Ohio and its division, Ferro Engineering — settled out of court,Baumener's attorney, John Kane, said.

Ferro will have to pay $2 million because the jury ordered each of the 25 defendants to pay 4 percent of the total. The 24 companies who settled out of court are immune to the jury's verdict.

Attorneys for Ferro could not be reached for comment.

Baumener was diagnosed withmesothelioma, a cancer of the lining of the lungs, in April and died in October. He was 62, Kane said.

Baumener worked for Carpenter Technology, a steel mill inReading. He sued several companies in May, including Ferro, alleging that the company sold asbestos-containing products to the mill where he worked.

Baumener and his wife, Marsha, moved from theirReading home into his daughter'sPlum home after his diagnosis.

"I think the jury understood the severity of the injury and the devastation on the entire family," Kane said.

Kane declined to say how much the family settled for in the other cases but said it was far less than $50 million.

Investor trying to resellCortland school building inOhio

Published: Tue, January 19, 2010

The Vindicator

ON THE MARKET? TheMissouri man who purchased Cortland Elementary at auction for $10,000 recently bought a similar school building inLima,Ohio, and re-sold it on eBay at a $40,000 profit.

By Ed Runyan

The building is within a mostly residential neighborhood.

CORTLAND — The investor who bought the formerCortlandElementary School on Park Avenue at auction in November is apparently marketing the building and trying to resell it, while the school district continues to negotiate with the city ofCortland to sell the former school playground across the street.

Robert Wilson, Lakeview superintendent, said the school district expects to reach an agreement in the coming weeks to sell the 5.5 acres acrossPearl Street from the former school for between $10,000 and $20,000.

The building is within a mostly residential neighborhood just north ofMain Street downtown.

“We want to keep it in the city for a green space and a recreation area for Bazetta residents andCortland residents,”Wilson said of the land that served as school playground and soccer fields for the Lakeview Optimist Soccer Association.

Dave Christner, chairman of the Cortland Parks Board and an officer in the Lakeview Athletic Boosters, said the playground contains six fields used for youth soccer games. It also contains one baseball field used on a regular basis.

Christner said he doesn’t know what the city will do if the parking lot at the school is no longer available for use by those attending soccer and baseball games, but one option will be to try to work out a parking agreement with the new owner.

Even if the parking lot is lost, the parks board believes the playground is worth preserving for green space, Christner said.

The school district sold the building at auction in November to the lone bidder, investor George Duncan ofMeadville,Mo., for $10,000.

The 132-year-old former high school and elementary building contains large amounts of asbestos, a building product widely used in theUnited States but later determined to be harmful.

The asbestos was covered to protect the occupants of the building, but the cost of demolishing the building is estimated at around $1 million, $800,000 of which would result from the removal of the asbestos, officials have said.

“The good thing for us that we don’t have to pay utilities and maintenance on it,”Wilson said of selling the building shortly after closing it. Students who were housed in the building last year were distributed to the district’s other three buildings in a cost-cutting move.

The superintendent said he has heard that the current owner is trying to resell the former school building.

Wilson said he doesn’t know what useDuncan will find for the building. A phone number for Duncan or his company could not be found.

In March 2009, Duncan, who went by the name George and Gayla Properties LLC, paid $30,000 at auction for the former Roosevelt School in Lima, Ohio, and resold it on eBay in April for $70,300 to David Yermian of Beverly Hills, Calif., according to records.

Amy Sackman Odum, director of Community Development for the city of Lima, which is between Dayton and Toledo, said there has been discussion of Yermian’s trying to develop the building into a nursing school, but so far nothing has occurred.

The building is within a residential neighborhood, Odum said. The property has remained in good condition since the school district sold it, Odum said.

A community group inLima contacted Yermian regarding the property shortly after he purchased it, Odum said, and discussed its concerns and offered to assist him with his project.

Top floor ofClevelandStateUniversity'sRhodesTower closed for two years because of asbestos cleanup

By Janet Okoben

December 17, 2009, 6:08AM

rhodes-tower-csu-asbestos-cropped.JPG

AClevelandStateUniversity official says it may be two years before faculty and staff can return to offices on the 19th floor ofRhodesTower, where crews are cleaning up asbestos.

About 40 faculty members and staff from the university's treasury services department who had been working on the 19th floor have been reassigned to offices in other buildings.

A waterproofing project on the roof ofRhodesTower in September dislodged pieces of ceiling tile, according to a statement issued by the university. The falling tile exposed the asbestos.

Jack Boyle, CSU's vice president for business affairs, estimated it will take "a couple of years" before anyone is able to return to work on the 19th floor.

Currently, it is sealed off with plastic sheeting and a sign on a stairwell door this week stated: "Please excuse our appearance while we are remodeling."

Although the evacuation occurred in September, news of the extent of the situation didn't get out until professors sought answers from administrators in a meeting last week. The history and philosophy departments were housed on the 19th floor.

Six employees whose offices were near a spot where a tile fell that "probably had asbestos," according to Boyle, were sent certified letters by the university recommending that they be tested for asbestos exposure.

"Legal [representatives for CSU] determined that those were the ones who should get the letter," he said.

Other employees who had worked on the 19th floor weren't recommended for medical testing.

Sonya Charles, an assistant professor of philosophy, said Wednesday thatshe didn't know testing has been offered to some employees. She has been relocated to the 16th floor ofRhodes and said she's not worried about asbestos exposure on that floor.

The ventilation system from the 19th floor has been isolated from the rest of the building, and air tests came back within reasonable limits for other parts of the building, Boyle said.

Administrators were aware thatRhodesTower was built with asbestos and CSU has been gradually renovating individual floors to remove it. The cost is estimated at $400,000 to $700,000 per floor just to abate asbestos inRhodes, according to Boyle.

Employees, who were told to take some belongings with them when the floor was evacuated, have been promised that their books and other items remaining in their offices will be decontaminated and returned in the next few weeks.

Mesothelioma and Asbestos Lawsuits are Affected byOhio Ruling

MesotheliomaCancerCenter News Release

Orlando,FL 10/28/2008 06:31 PM GMT (TransWorldNews)

The Ohio Supreme Court has made a second decision that may have important consequences for anyone seeking compensation for mesothelioma or other asbestos-related injuries.

The Supreme Court’s ruling stated that the 1977 decision, which extended liability for defective products from manufacturers to suppliers, would not be applied to any events that occurred before the ruling.

In making the decision, the Supreme Court threw out the lawsuit of a widow who claimed a company, which insulated pipes at her husband’s place of work, should share the responsibility for his asbestos-related death.

Joseph DiCenzo, who worked for Wheeling-Pittsburgh Steel Co., passed away in 1993 from malignant mesothelioma. His wife named 80 defendants in the lawsuit, includingPennsylvania company George V. Hamilton Inc. During the 1950s, the company had supplied Wheeling-Pitt with asbestos-containing pipe coverings.

 

According to the Ohio Supreme Court’s decision in the case, the widow’s claim was invalid due to the new ruling that the 1977 decision would not be applied retroactively.

In the decision, Justice Evelyn Lundberg Stratton wrote the Supreme Court had a “three-prong test” for judging whether or not legal interpretations should be applied retroactively. Stratton wrote this case had not passed the test.

One of the three important parts of the test is whether or not applying a court ruling retroactively would promote the original intent of the decision.

The 1977 decision, wrote Stratton, was to encourage product safety and that “Products containing asbestos have not been manufactured or sold for approximately 30 years. The time for making these products safer has come and gone.”

In addition, Stratton stated the George V. Hamilton company could not have predicted it might one day be liable for injuries caused by products sold several decades ago.

As a result, the decision says, “Imposing such a potential financial burden on these nonmanufacturing suppliers years after the fact for an obligation that was not foreseeable at the time would result in a great inequity.”

The decision is an important one because many people who develop pleural mesothelioma do so between three and five decades after initial asbestos exposure.

Chief Justice Thomas Moyer and Justice Paul Pfeifer both disagreed with the decision. Pfeifer said the decision was “unheard of” and that it “changed the rules” for many families who had formerly had legitimate claims. Pfeifer wrote that the belief that the decision was a retroactive one was a “logical belief” which had been “torn asunder.”
