Judge vacates record asbestos verdict

A judge has granted the motion of two chemical companies to vacate the record-setting asbestos verdict that was awarded in a case against them earlier this year. The reason for the reversal was an alleged conflict of interest between a defendant company and the judge who oversaw the original asbestos trial against that company.

Judge removed from asbestos lawsuit

Back in May, we wrote about a record-setting verdict which awarded more than $300 million to a plaintiff who had filed an asbestos lawsuit against two major companies. Immediately, one of the defendant companies stated that it would appeal on the basis of the presiding judge's alleged conflict of interest. Last week, the appeals court ordered the judge removed from the case and halted all action on the lawsuit until a new judge is appointed. The status of the verdict, however, was not addressed.

Company asks court to vacate record asbestos award

This spring has been a busy one for mesothelioma attorneys across the United States, with juries in Illinois and throughout the country awarding record-setting damages amounts to plaintiffs who are suffering from mesothelioma and other asbestos-related illnesses. After a Mississippi jury awarded the highest-ever damage award to a plaintiff suffering from asbestosis, the defendant company has filed an appeal, claiming that the judge has a conflict of interest which should have disqualified him from presiding over the case.
