A jury in Baltimore, Maryland, has ordered a sealant company to pay a 73-year-old man $15.3 million after determining that he developed mesothelioma from exposure to asbestos-containing products made by the company. George J. Linkus worked at Key Highway Shipyard from 1952 to 1959. In 1954, Mr. Linkus moved to the machine shop and worked on lining valves using rope made by the defendant, John Crane Inc. The jury found that the rope used by Linkus contained asbestos. As you know, mesothelioma is a cancer directly linked to asbestos. The verdict came after a three-week trial. David L. Palmer of Baltimore, Maryland represented the plaintiff and did a very good job.
