Successfully settled case involving $14 million claim for asbestos exposure
Resolved a claim against a manufacturer following a 3-week trial. Plaintiff asked for $14 million. After a day of negotiations and what appeared to be a jury ready to render a decision, the judge requested an investigation of concerns regarding eavesdropping by opposing counsel. The case was settled favorably over the weekend and the jury returned on Monday to advise the court of a defense verdict it had reached the prior Friday.
