Judge Ruling Provides Asbestos Victims with Access to Information to Support Prosecution

Alameda County Superior Court Kazan Law attorney William F. Ruiz‘s diligent efforts helped bring about a victory for asbestos disease victims in seeking information they need to prosecute their lawsuit.

On June 29, 2012, in the case Godinez-Phillips v. Allied Packing & Supply, Inc. (RG10543768), Alameda County Superior Court Judge Jo-Lynne Q. Lee denied defendant Turner Construction Company’s motion for reconsideration of a previous order requiring Turner to comply with the victims’ notice of deposition of its corporate representative and custodian of records. This ruling prevents Turner from avoiding complying with the notice of deposition by producing a knowledgable witness or relevant documents.

Judge Lee in so holding specifically refused to interpret a recent appellate decision as prohibiting an employee’s family members from suing for asbestos-related diseases that were at least partly caused by the employee’s employment.
