Barbara Harris v. Bondex International, Inc.
A 79 year-old woman with mesothelioma claimed exposure to asbestos in her work in building management from 1961-77. Three joint compound defendants remained at the time of trial. The defendants argued that their products were not substantial factors in causing the plaintiff's mesothelioma. They further argued that the plaintiff incorrectly identified their products.
After a 21-day trial, the jury returned a complete defense verdict.
