Award in Pipefitter’s Calif. Mesothelioma Case is Believed to Be the Largest Asbestos Verdict Against Boiler Manufacturer Weil-McLain
Plaintiff Shawn Swanson contended that his father Robert Swanson died as a result of malignant mesothelioma, which plaintiff contends was caused by Robert Swanson’s exposure to asbestos-containing boilers, gaskets, rope, and cement manufactured, supplied or distributed by defendant Marley-Wylain Company.
