Pennsylvania Mesothelioma Lawsuit Dismissed For Lack of Evidence
A Pennsylvania higher court recently threw out a widow’s mesothelioma lawsuit against several large companies because of speculative evidence. The widow was relying solely on one of her husband’s coworker’s memory of asbestos in the products at various sites where they worked as bricklayers. The courts ruled this was not enough.
I read about this case in Legal Newsline, a law newsletter. The article stated that the key witness was allowed to rely just on his own “knowledge and belief” that certain products contained asbestos. An appellate judge upheld a lower court decision that this was “speculative” and dismissed the case.
This decision is good news for the defendants General Electric Company, Georgia Pacific LLC, CBS Corporation-Westinghouse, Goulds Pumps, Inc., Zurn Industries and Trane US Inc. because now they do not have pay for the harm they allegedly caused Henry Krauss. Mr. Krauss died from mesothelioma, a cancer caused only by asbestos exposure. His widow Colleen Krauss brought the mesothelioma lawsuit.
