David and Alice M. vs. Owens Corning Fiberglass
CaseyGerry partner Frederick Schenk obtained $2.4 in punitive damages as well as economic losses – the largest verdict ever against an asbestos manufacturer (Owens Corning Fiberglass) in the County of San Diego – for client David M., who developed terminal mesothelioma due to exposure to asbestos insulation while serving aboard the U.S.S. Constellation. This case involved strict products liability caused by defendant’s knowledge of the product’s hazard and its refusal to warn of the dangers or to remove its product from the market.
Verdict: $2.5 million
