Francisco Herrera, et al. v. Certainteed Corporation, et al.


01/09/18 – 02/01/18


An Arizona state court jury has delivered a defense verdict in favor of CertainTeed Corp. in an asbestos lawsuit, finding that the building materials company is not responsible for the death of a pipefitter whose family claimed he developed cancer after years of inhaling dust generated by sawing asbestos cement pipes.

The jury returned the verdict on February 1 after roughly three hours of deliberation following a trial that began on January 9. They rejected allegations from Francisco Herrera’s wife and three adult children that CertainTeed knew their asbestos-containing cement pipes posed a health risk but failed to adequately warn workers.
