Greene Espel client wins summary judgment in asbestos case

Greene Espel recently defended a distributor of construction equipment when a plaintiff claimed the company’s equipment exposed him to asbestos in the 1960s. At the plaintiff’s deposition, Greene Espel was able to obtain favorable admissions regarding the extent of the plaintiff’s exposure to the equipment in question. The plaintiff also unequivocally identified the manufacturers of the equipment. With that information, we expeditiously moved for summary judgment, and the district court dismissed all claims against our client. Mark Johnson and Larry Shapiro handled the case.
