Asbestos, Mesothelioma, Exxon Mobil & Bourke: A case in the United States District Court, E.D. Louisiana ruled on a motion to remand.

The Asbestos, Mesothelioma, Exxon Mobil & Bourke case is about second hand asbestos exposure and mesothelioma.  Specifically, the case is about the son of an Exxon Mobil Baton Rouge refinery worker that alleges that he contracted mesothelioma from second hand asbestos exposure from his father’s clothes.

A brief summary of the facts include:

  • According to the Plaintiff, he was exposed to asbestos from around 1953 through the 1970s.
  • More specifically, Plaintiff contends that, from his birth in 1953 through 1960, he was “repeatedly exposed to asbestos” as a child from his “father’s person and work clothes,” when his father worked “with and around asbestos-containing products at the Exxon Baton Rouge facilities.”
  • Then, as an adult, Plaintiff contends he was repeatedly exposed to asbestos from approximately 1965 through 1978 while working as a carpenter at “various residential construction sites” and as a contractor “at the Exxon Baton Rouge Refinery.”
