Andrew L. Sharp and Khaled Taqi-Eddin successfully argued and were awarded a Non-Suit after three weeks of trial for Calaveras Asbestos, Ltd. in the Fresno County Superior Court, State of California.
Plaintiffs filed suit for the death of James Phillips arguing that Calaveras had supplied raw asbestos fiber to Johns Manville and CertainTeed for the manufacture of asbestos-containing cement pipe and that Mr. Phillips was exposed to the pipe during his work as a plumber. At the conclusion of the plaintiff’s case, Mr. Sharp and Mr. Taqi-Eddin convinced the Court that plaintiffs had failed to prove a connection between the alleged exposure and any fiber supplied by Calaveras.
