Thacker v. 3M Company


08/13/09 – 08/14/09


Asbestos liability jury trial in Los Angeles Superior Court.

Plaintiff Robert Thacker contracted pleural mesothelioma from asbestos exposure in the 1970s, when he worked as a pipe fitter. The plaintiff died after the cancer spread to his spine and brain.

The remaining defendant was Weil-McLain, which manufactured boilers that contained asbestos. Weil-McLain argued that the plaintiff never worked around a Weil-McLain boiler. Instead, according to the defendant, the plaintiff worked only around larger industrial boilers made by a different manufacturer.

The case settled during the second day.
