Summary

Asbestos liability jury trial in Los Angeles Superior court.

Plaintiff's lung was removed due to lung cancer (not mesothelioma). Plaintiff allegedly was exposed to asbestos as a teenager in the late 1950's while working in the auto repair business at a Shell service station, and while maintaining his own 1937 Ford.

Defendants -- Dana, Ford, Honeywell, Pep Boys, and Pneumo Abex -- made and/or sold automotive products (e.g., gaskets, clutches, brakes) containing asbestos, which allegedly were not tested for safety and were not accompanied by any safety warnings.

Defendants alleged that the plaintiff's lung cancer was actually caused by second-hand smoke.
