Insulators – Asbestos Exposure – Mesothelioma Asbestos Lawsuits Filed

Three more asbestos suits filed in St. Clair County 
3/23/2010 8:29 AM By Kelly Holleran 

Three moreasbestos lawsuits have been added to the growing list of cases in St. Clair County's asbestos docket.

John Weir filed thesixth St. Clair County Circuit Court asbestos lawsuit of the year while James and Susan Keller filed the seventh and Susan and Kenneth Brockfiled the eighth. None of the plaintiffs specify in which state they currently reside.

In their complaint filed March 10, the Kellers allege nine defendant companies caused James Keller to develop pleural plaques after his exposure to asbestos-containing products throughout his career.

James Keller worked as a lifeguard at a YMCA from 1969 until 1971; as an assistant team manager at Roadway Express until 1977; as an assistant terminal manager in 1978; as a laborer, estimator and vice president at James A. Keller Inc. from 1969 until 1994; and as the vice president and owner of Grayhawk from 1994 until now, according to the complaint.

According to the Brocks' March 10 complaint filed against 10 defending companies, Susan Brock developed lung cancer after her work as a kitchen server at Lutheran Hospital from 1966 until 1969, as a packer and assembler at General Electric Co. from 1969 until 1974, as a machine operator at Harvester from 1976 until 1981, as a painter at Rosener Decorating from 1983 until 1986, as a truck driver and loader at Purolator Courier from 1986 until 1989, as a package handler and courier at Fed Ex from 1989 until 1997, as a driver for Statewide Medical from 1998 until 1999 and as a truck driver from 1999 until 2007.

In Weir's March 10 complaint against 13 defendant companies, he claims to havedeveloped lung cancer after his work for the U.S. Army from 1973 until 1974, as a boiler builder at Mike Russo Plumbing in the 1970s, as a worker coating pipes with asbestos for Weinstein in the 1970s and as aninsulator at J.A. Croson from 1984 until 1986.

The defendants should have known of the harmful effects of asbestos, but failed to exercise reasonable care and caution for James Keller's, Susan Brock's and Weir's safety, the suit states.

As a result of their asbestos-related diseases, James Keller, Susan Brock and Weir became disabled and disfigured, incurred medical costs and suffered great physical pain and mental anguish, the complaints say. In addition, they claim they became prevented from pursuing their normal course of employment and, as a result, lost large sums of money that would have accrued to them.

Susan Keller and Kenneth Brock claim they have been deprived of their spouses' companionship and society.

In their six-count suit, the Kellers seek a judgment of more than $200,000 and compensatory damages of more than $100,000, plus other relief the court deems just. They also seek unspecified punitive damages in an amount sufficient to deter the defendants from similar conduct in the future.

In their 10-count complaint, the Brocks seek a judgment of more than $100,000, compensatory damages of more than $100,000, unspecified punitive damages in an amount sufficient to deter the defendants from similar conduct in the future, more than $150,000 in punitive and exemplary damages and more than $150,000 in economic damages, plus other relief the court deems just.

In his five-count complaint, Weir seeks compensatory damages of more than $100,000, punitive damages in an amount sufficient to deter the defendants from similar conduct in the future, punitive and exemplary damages of more than $100,000 and a judgment of more than $50,000, plus other relief the court deems just. 

Randy L. Gori and Barry Julian of Gori, Julian and Associates in Edwardsville will be representing all the plaintiffs.

St. Clair County Circuit Court case numbers: 10-L-111, 10-L-112, 10-L-113.

Insulator – Asbestos Trades – $5.2 Million Asbestos Lawsuit

Clearfield woman awarded $5.2 million in asbestos case

ByEmiley Morgan Deseret News
Publication: Deseret Morning News (Salt Lake City)
Date: Sunday, May 16 2010

SALTLAKECITY ? When Vickie Warren was a teenager growing up inProvo, she would often help her father, a Geneva Steel employee, with homebuilding that he did on the side. To smooth out the joints in the walls, her father used a compound that he would apply and shave down, and his daughter would clean up the dust and debris that was left behind.

What they didn't know then was that thecompound contained asbestos, which would later lead, very likely, to her death.Warren is now so ill due to the exposure that her story had to be recounted to the Deseret News by one of her attorneys, Bob Gilchrist. Gilchrist representedWarren in a case that last week led aSalt Lake City jury to hand down what Gilchrist said may be "the largest asbestos verdict ever inUtah or the surrounding states" following a 5?1/2 week trial. In total,Warren wasawarded more than $5.2 million in damages.Asbestos is a fiber commonly used in building construction materials as aninsulator and fire retardant, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. The government's National Cancer Institute further explains that asbestos is the "major risk factor" for a type of cancer known asmesothelioma, whichWarren has battled since 2007. Seventy to 80 percent ofmesothelioma cases can be traced to asbestos exposure. "You don't usually develop that cancer until 20 to 30 years later," Gilchrist said. "And it is fatal and she will pass away from that. ? She is a very heroic, very nice woman." The defendants in the case included building manufacturing companies Georgia-Pacific, LLP and Hamilton Materials, Inc. and asbestos-mining company Union Carbide Corp.Gilchirst said the jury found that Georgia-Pacific and Hamilton Materials produced "defectively designed" joint compounds made up of asbestos fiber products produced by Union Carbide. The jury awardedWarren approximately $1.4 million in economic damages and more than $3.7 million in non-economic damages. For Gilchrist, it is a victory not only for himself and for Warren, but his various other clients who died before their cases could even make it to trial. "It was wonderful," he said, "to finally have a jury pay attention and do what we thought was right by Vickie Warren. ? To be doing this for 10 years and to get results like this is beyond belief." The case was presided over by 3rd District Judge Glenn Iwasaki. Attorneys representing the companies involved in the case did not return calls.e-mail: emorgan@desnews.com

Insulators – Asbestos Exposure – Asbestos in Your Lungs

Asbestos: What It Does to Your Lungs

By Darlene Oakley

January 25, 2010 - 8:53am

What is Asbestos?

Asbestos is a fiber that was used as an insulator and fire-retardant in the past. While the EPA and CPSC have banned the use of asbestos for many things and it is no longer used in newer homes, it may still be found in homes and buildings built in a time whenasbestos products were available. Asbestos is still used in pipe and furnace insulation, shingles,millboard, textured paints, and floor tiles.

Even without asbestos insulation, this fiber can become airborne through remodeling older homes, or improper protocols when cutting and cleaning up asbestos fibers from new home improvement projects.

Asbestos is also a naturally occurring mineral and can be found in soils and rocks and can be released into the air through construction or weather. So long as the soil and rock remain undisturbed, there is no health risk.

Asbestos and the Lungs

Those who have experienced prolonged exposure to asbestos fibers are at higher risk of lung cancer,mesotheliomaand nonmalignant lung and pleural disorders like asbestosis, pleural plaques, pleural thickening, and pleural effusion. The progression of these conditions may continue even after exposure to asbestos has been restricted.

Asbestos-related lung conditions develop over time, up to 15 years or longer after preliminary exposure for those who work(ed) with asbestos. Smokers who are exposed to asbestos are at a significantly greater risk for asbestos-related conditions than non-smokers.

These conditions develop when asbestos fibers are not completely exhaled by the lungs. They remain lodged in the lungs and stay there. As theamount of fibers accumulate over the years, the lung tissue becomes scarred and inflamed. As the scarring and inflammation worsen, it becomes more and more difficult for a person to breathe.

Types of Asbestos-related Conditions

Asbestosis

Asbestosis develops when the lung tissues become scarred or inflamed from prolonged exposure. Those who have been exposed to asbestos may develop asbestosis anywhere between 10 to 20 years after initial exposure.

Some patients will have no symptoms at all while other patients will have very debilitating and potentially fatal symptoms.

Such symptoms include:

-shortness of breath
- continuous and productive cough
- tightness in the chest
- loss of appetite
- dry, crackling sound with inhaling

Mesothelioma

This is a rare cancer that affects the lining of the chest cavity, the outside of the lung (pleura) or abdominal area (peritoneum).

Lung Cancer

Lung cancer is a malignant disease that invades and obstructs the lung's air passages.

There is speculation that asbestos exposure can also lead to gastrointestinal and colorectal cancers, as well as cancers of the kidney, brain, larynx, and bladder. But no definitive correlation has been found.

Preventing Exposure

Asbestos poses no health threat so long as the products that contain asbestos remain undamaged or disturbed. The best idea is to just leave these products alone. If you are planning renovations either on an older house, or using products that still contain asbestos, make sure you contractor is trained and qualified to ensure that any disturbed asbestos is cleaned up. Also, ensure that all damaged or worn asbestos gloves, stove-top pads, or ironing board covers are thrown away and that local health, environmental, and other regulations are followed for proper, safe disposal.

Insulator – Asbestos Trades – Lung Cancer Lawsuit

Gori and Julian add more asbestos cases to St. Clair County docket 
3/25/2010 10:15 AM By KellyHolleran 

Five moreasbestos lawsuits have been added to the growing list of cases in St. Clair County's asbestos docket.

Charles Graham filed theninth St. Clair County Circuit Court asbestos lawsuit of the year while��John E. and Charlotte Williams filed the 10th, James and Donna Byrnes filed the 11th, Roger and Sybil Woods filed the 12th and Raleigh and JanetYarberough filed the 13th. None of the plaintiffs besides Graham, who lives inWisconsin, specify in which state they reside.

In their complaint filed March 12, theYarberoughs allege 26 defendant companies caused RaleighYarberough to develop lung cancer after his exposure to asbestos-containing products throughout his career. 

RaleighYarberough worked as a seaman in the U.S. Navy from 1956 until 1960, as a service worker at Gross Air Heating and Cooling from 1960 until 1969, as a machine operator at Service Heel Company from 1971 until 1975 and as a carpenter and mill operator in 1976, according to the complaint. 

According to Charles Graham's March 12 complaint filed against nine defending companies, he says his recently deceased father, Richard Graham, developed lung cancer after his work as a motor machinist's mate in the U.S. Navy from 1943 until 1946 and as a telegrapher, switcher and dispatcher at Chicago Northwestern from 1946 until 1986. 

Richard Graham, who was diagnosed with the disease Nov. 20, 2006, died Jan. 21, 2007, the suit states.

In The Williams' March 12 complaint against 13 defendant companies, John E. Williams claims to havedeveloped lung cancer after his work as a laborer atKlossner Brothers from 1959 until 1960, as a carpenter at D&L Construction from 1960 until 1961, as a carpenter at Bauman Construction from 1962 until 1965, as a carpenter at L.J.McNeary from 1965 until 1969 and as a self-employedinsulator from 1970 until 2008. 

The Byrnes claim in their March 12 complaint that James Byrnes developed lung cancer after his work in the U.S. Army Reserves from 1960 until 1968 and as a wireman through IBEW Local I from 1964 until 2001. The Byrnes named 32 defendants in their complaint.

In their March 12 complaint against 13 defendants corporations, the Woods claim Roger Woods developed lung cancer after his work as stocker and cashier at Jitney Jungle from 1964 until 1967, as a deck hand at Brent Towing Company in 1968, as a pipefitter at various locations from 1967 until 1972 and as a handyman, installer, rebuilder and manager from 1972 until now. 

The defendants should have known of the harmful effects of asbestos, but failed to exercise reasonable care and caution for the plaintiffs' or their deceased relative's safety, the suit states.

As a result of their asbestos-related diseases, the plaintiffs or their deceased relatives became disabled and disfigured, incurred medical costs and suffered great physical pain and mental anguish, the complaints say. In addition, they claim they became prevented from pursuing their normal course of employment and, as a result, lost large sums of money that would have accrued to them.

Charles Graham, Charlotte Williams, Donna Byrnes, Sybil Woods and JanetYarberough claim they have been deprived of their family member's companionship and society because of the diseases.

In their six-count suit, theYarberoughs seek a judgment of more than $100,000, punitive and exemplary damages of more than $100,000, compensatory damages of more than $100,000, punitive damages in an amount to sufficiently punish the defendants for their behavior and other relief the court deems just.

In his six-count complaint, Charles Graham seeks a judgment of more than $200,000, compensatory damages of more than $100,000 and punitive damages in an amount sufficient to punish the defendants for their behavior.

In their six-count complaint, the Williams seek a judgment of more than $100,000, compensatory damages of more than $100,000, punitive and exemplary damages of more than $100,000 and punitive damages in an amount sufficient to punish the defendants for their behavior.

In their 10-count complaint, the Byrnes seek a judgment of more than $100,000, compensatory damages of more than $100,000, economic damages of more than $150,000, punitive and exemplary damages of more than $100,000 and punitive damages in an amount sufficient to deter the defendants from similar conduct in the future.

In their 10-count complaint, the Woods seek a judgment of more than $100,000, compensatory damages of more than $50,000, economic damages of more than $150,000, punitive and exemplary damages of more than $100,000 and other relief the court deems just.

Randy L.Gori and Barry Julian ofGori, Julian and Associates in Edwardsville will be representing all the plaintiffs.

St. Clair County Circuit Court case numbers: 10-L-123, 10-L-124,10-L-125,10-L-126, 10-L-127.

Insulator – Asbestos Trades – $5.2 Million Mesothelioma Verdict

 

Worker's Family Wins $5.2 Million Asbestos Verdict

 

Feb 24, 2004 | AP A jury awarded $5.2 million in damages Tuesday to the family of a refinery worker who died of lung disease that he blamed on exposure toasbestos-laden insulation made by a subsidiary of Pfizer Inc.

The jury in El Paso County deliberated about two hours before returning the verdict against Quigley Co.

Lawyers for the family of Luis Ytuarte Sr. said during a weeklong trial that he became ill after many years of handling a powderedinsulation that Quigley made to protect furnaces, pipes and boilers.

Ytuarte was aninsulator, brick mason and laborer in a Phelps Dodge Corp. copper refinery inEl Paso from 1948 through the mid-1980s.

He wasdiagnosed with mesothelioma, a form of cancer linked to asbestos exposure, in February 2002 and died nine months later at age 77.

A lawyer for the Ytuarte family, said Quigley officials knew about the dangers of the asbestos in the insulation for years but continued to sell the product until 1974.

"It boils down to the jury feels you have a company that chose profit over safety and worker health," said the Ytuarte family lawyer.

The jury awarded the family $2.7 million in compensatory damages and $2.5 million in punitive damages.

The award will be reduced by the amount that the family has received in settlements from other companies that made asbestos-containing products used at the plant,Moreno said. He estimated those settlements totaled about $500,000.

A separate lawsuit by the family against Phelps Dodge is scheduled to go to trial in October in the same courtroom of Judge Javier Alvarez.

February 25, 2004 -Texas jury awards asbestos victim $5.2M

 

ATexas jury has ordered an insulation manufacturer to pay the family of a deceased refinery worker $5.2 million in damages (Ytuarte v. Quigley Co. Inc.). The deceased worked as aninsulator, mason and laborer for Phelps Dodge Refining Corp. from 1948 through the mid 1980s and frequently handled insulation, called Insulag, used on pipes, boilers and furnaces. Insulag was manufactured by Quigley Corp. The plaintiffs allege that the company knew as early as 1959 that the asbestos contained in Insulag posed a health threat but continued to manufacture and sell Insulag until 1974. The plaintiff died one year after being diagnosed with mesothelioma at age 77. The jury ordered Quigley Corp. to pay $2.706 million in compensatory damages and $2.5 million in punitive damages. Other defendants which manufactured asbestos-containing products used at the Phelps Dodge facility had previously settled their liability for $500,000. The award against Quigley will be reduced by the amount obtained in the previous settlements.

Insulators – Asbestos Trades – Asbestos Products – 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.

Theasbestos 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.

The Toledo, 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 ininsulation, 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.''

Insulator – Asbestos Trades – $20 Million Mesothelioma Verdict

 

Asbestos Victim wins Twenty Million over Secondary Exposure

Posted on November 16th, 2009

by Deon Scott in All News

An asbestos victim who has contracted the asbestos cancer mesothelioma has won a massive twenty million dollars after contracting the disease through exposure to asbestos on a secondary basis. The woman, and nursing professor, is thought to have been exposed to asbestos through washing clothing.

It is claimed that she used to wash her grandfather’s clothes back in the 1960s, and this is where the secondary exposure is thought to have occurred. She went on to develop the asbestos related cancer, which can take decades to develop from the time of exposure.

Hergrandfather worked as an insulator, and because asbestos was widely used ininsulation in the 1960s, as well as in many other industries and applications, he would get asbestos dust and fibers on his clothing, which his granddaughter then washed.

The professor, having filed a lawsuit as a result of contracting the disease, has now been awarded twenty million dollars as a result of her exposure according to recent reports.

Insulators – Asbestos Trades – $9 Million Dollar Asbestos Wrongful Death Verdict

San Francisco Jury Awards 9,057,775 for Wrongful Death

On November 19, 2008, aSan Francisco jury awarded a total of $9,057,775 to the widow, sons and daughter of two pipefitters who died of an asbestos cancer. The jury rendered their verdict against PlantInsulationCompany, formerly known as Plant Asbestos Company.

Jolene Mudgett, the daughter of Joseph Sandra, was awarded $1,250,000 for the death of her father, who succumbed to mesothelioma, a cancer of the lining of the lungswhose only established caused is that of inhaled exposure to asbestosfibers. Mr. Sandra was 87 years old at the time of his death. Mr. Sandra is survived by his daughter, Jolene Mudgett, his son, John Sandra, and his wife, Molly Sandra.

Plant InsulationCompany was theNorthern California exclusive supplier of asbestos-containing pipecover, block and asbestos cement products, made by Fiberboard Corporation, known as "Pabco." Plant Insulation Company was a major industrial insulating contractor that exposed Mr. Sandra at a number of bay area oil refineries from 1955 to 1975. The jury found that Plant InsulationCompany was found liable for failing to warn Mr. Sandra about the unsafeinsulation products he was exposed to. PlantInsulationcompany was found to be 18% at fault, with other manufacturers, distributors and suppliers of asbestos products, who were not present at the trial, found to be 82% at fault in causing Mr. Sandra's mesothelioma. Co-worker and eye-witness James Szuch testified for the Plaintiffs.

Franklin Yancey died of mesothelioma at the age of 68 at theUniversity ofTexas,M.D.AndersonCancerCenter, inHouston,Texas. He was survived by his wife of 25 years, Janice Yancey, and two adult sons, Jeff Yancey and Monte Yancey. The jury awarded $7,807,775 in damages. Mr. Yancey worked atSan Francisco oil refineries in the bay area in the 1960s, and his two adult sons followed in the footsteps of their father. Mr. Yancey's co-worker and eye-witness, Vern Gosney, testified for the Yancey family. Plant Insulation company was found to be 10% at fault, with other manufacturers, distributors and suppliers of asbestos products, who were not present at the trial, found to be 90% at fault in causing Mr. Sandra's mesothelioma.

Plaintiff's expert witnesses included Charles Ay, a careerinsulatorand pipefitter, Dr. Barry Horn, a pulmonologist from Berkeley, California; Dr. Richard Cohen, a physician who testified regarding the state-of-the-art, from Saratoga, California; Dr. Brian Dolan, a Southern California internist; John Templin, an industrial hygienist and materials analyst from Long Beach, California; Dr. Allan Smith, an epidemiologist from Berkeley, California, and Dr. Barry Ben-Zion, an economist from Santa Rosa, California.

Insulators – Asbestos Trades - $7 Mesothelioma Verdict

ASBESTOS JUDGMENTS COST DUPONT $7 MILLION CHEMICAL GIANT LOSES THREE OF FIVE CLAIMS


Publication: THECHARLESTON GAZETTE
Published: 03/06/2002
Page: 1C
Headline: ASBESTOS JUDGMENTS COST DUPONT $7 MILLION CHEMICAL GIANT LOSES THREE OF FIVE CLAIMS
Byline: LAWRENCE MESSINA

larrym@wvgazette.com

Leonard Dale Cox was chief executive officer of the Bank of Gassaway when doctors told him that asbestos was about to kill him.

Cox, 52, had never worked with the heat- and fire-resistant fibers. Nonetheless, they had coated his lungs enough to promptmesothelioma, an inoperable form of lung cancer.

Doctors soon found the fibers' origin: Cox's father. Cecil Cox hadinstalled asbestos insulation at DuPont's Belle plant from the 1940s until his 1970s retirement. Each day, he brought the fibers home in his work clothes and coveralls.

Leonard Cox died in 2000. He was 53. His survivors blame DuPont for his fatal illness. A Kanawha Circuit jury agreed with them last week, and ordered DuPont to pay $6.4 million.

That verdict includes $1.7 million for Cox's lost earnings, $2 million for Cox's widow and $300,000 to each of their two children for their loss, another $2 million for his pain and suffering and $118,000 for medical bills.


The jury also awarded $600,000 to the widow of a DuPont laborer and mechanic. DuPont intentionally exposed RoyLupardis to asbestos, the jury found, because the chemical giant knew of the fibers' negative effects throughoutLupardis' 35 years at the Belle plant.

"The jury in this case found that the employer, DuPont, acted with 'deliberate intent,'" William Schwartz, a lawyer forLupardis' widow, said Tuesday. "I think that was a significant finding."

But the jury rejected a similar claim from the family of another longtime DuPont worker. RobertPritt had worked at the Belle plant from the 1940s until 1959. He died ofmesothelioma last year.

The jury also refused to blame DuPont for the lung cancer that killed Page Humphreys. His survivors linked his exposure to his stint as a union contract worker at DuPont'sParkersburg plant in 1960.

But the jury awarded $24,800 to a second contract worker. BernardBelville blames the asbestos-related thickening of the lining of his lungs on his 10 weeks at the Belle plant.

The jury reached its various verdicts Friday, capping a three-week trial before a pair of judges assigned all asbestos-related claims.

The case originally involved more than 60 plaintiffs and a number of companies. All but the five claims against DuPont settled before the trial's opening statements.

Asbestos claims generally allege that the companies that made, used or installed the fibrous material had known for decades of its health hazards, but suppressed that knowledge until the 1970s.

The state workers' compensation system normally handles injury claims against employers. Workers must clear a series of legal hurdles when they file suit against employers, as in the case ofLupardis andPritt.

Senior Judge AndrewMacQueen and Ohio County Circuit Judge MartinGaughan presided over the trial, which was held at the Robert C. Byrd United States Courthouse to accommodate the number of lawyers involved.

The jury started deliberating Thursday afternoon and returned its verdicts Friday evening.

Insulators – Asbestos Trades - Mesothelioma Death

Former Combustion Worker Wins $1.4 Million Asbestos Verdict

September 22, 2009 1:32 PM - newschannel9.com

Monday afternoon aHamiltonCounty jury returned a record $1.4 million dollar verdict against National Service Industries, doing business as North Brothers. The trial was believed to be only the second asbestos trial in the state ofTennessee in the last 15 years or so. The verdict is believed to be the first asbestos verdict rendered against North Brothers in any state.

The case – officially titled Marian H. Jackson, individually and as surviving spouse of Kenneth W. Jackson v. BreedingInsulation Company, Inc. et al., Hamilton County Circuit Court, Division 1, case no. 07C936 – was tried over the course of seven days. The jury of twelve then deliberated for almost two days before reaching its unanimous decision. All of the other defendants in the case except for North Brothers either settled with the plaintiff or else were dismissed prior to the trial.

Mr. Wayne Jackson worked as apipefitter at Combustion Engineering inChatanooga from 1952-1986. During that time he was repeatedly exposed to asbestos-containing products, some of which were manufactured or sold by North Brothers. The jury found that North Brothers sold defective products to CombustionEngineering, that Mr. Jackson was exposed to North Brothers’ products, and that North Brothers’ products caused or contributed to Mr. Jackson’s development ofmesothelioma (a rare form of cancer that is uniquely associated with asbestos exposure).

Among others, testifying on behalf of the plaintiffs during the trial were Jerrold Abraham, M.D. (a world renowned pathologist from SUNY), RichardLemen, Ph.D. (an epidemiologist and former deputy director of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health), and Bruce Hutchinson, Ph.D. (a U.T.C. economist). The only witness who testified for North Brothers was William Dyson (an industrial hygienist).

Mrs. Jackson and theJackson family were represented by attorney Jimmy Rodgers with the law firm of Summers & Wyatt inChattanooga, along with attorneysRettGuerry and Ben Cunningham from the Motley Rice law firm out ofCharleston,South Carolina.

According to Mr. Rodgers: “We are very appreciative of the service by the individual jurors, and that they took their time to consider the evidence. Our main regret is that the jury had no means to bring Mr. Jackson back to his wife and family.”

Added Mr. Rodgers: “This verdict represents a milestone victory for asbestos victims – not only for Combustion retirees in theChattanooga area, but also for all people exposed to asbestos throughoutTennessee and theChattanooga metropolitan area as well. Hopefully this verdict wills send a signal to asbestos manufacturers and suppliers that the days of getting away with knowingly exposingTennessee citizens and workers to poisonous and defective products is over.”

EPA to test air for asbestos inNortheast Minnesota homes

The agency removed contaminated soil several years ago; it will now offer voluntary testing in 30 to 50 homes as a precaution.

By TOM MEERSMAN, Star Tribune

Last update: September 10, 2008 - 12:07 AM

You are usually better to leave it in place if possible

Once you start tearing into is when you will have an exposure. Asbestos as a solid piece is not a concern it is the fine particles or … read morefibers that are released once you start to do demo or remodeling work.

The air in several dozen homes in northeastMinneapolis will be tested for asbestos as part of the decade-long cleanup of pollution from aninsulation factory, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced (EPA) Tuesday.

From 1938 to 1989, the W.R. Grace Co. and its predecessor, Western Mineral Products Inc., processed vermiculite ore fromMontana into home insulation. The factory gave away asbestos-laced waste for homeowners to use as fill in driveways, yards and gardens.

The EPA removed contaminated soil from 268 yards between 2000 and 2004. It has now decided to test the air and dust in 30 to 50 of those homes as a precaution.

"We have no evidence to suggest that indoor air of these homes has been impacted," said Mark Johnson, chief of theChicago office of the U.S. Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, which is a partner with the EPA in the research.

Kids of all ages used it

Terry Thiele, who lived around the corner from the plant during childhood, said he and many neighborhood kids played in the asbestos-laden material in the 1950s and 1960s, not knowing it was dangerous.

It was good for all ages, he said: Young children used it for sandboxes, older ones took wagonloads of it to build a baseball infield, and high-schoolers shoveled it into 5-gallon buckets to give their cars better traction in winter.

When told about the new study, Thiele said it's probably a good idea, but he doesn't expect officials to find much asbestos. "It came into our home through our clothing, and that was 40 or 50 years ago," he said. "It would surprise me if there's still traces from that anywhere."

Thiele, 61, ofMaple Grove, said that he and his siblings and mother all have asbestosis to some degree and that his father died from mesothelioma. "My whole family has lung X-rays that look like patchwork quilts because of all the scarring" from the fibers, he said.
