Asbestos, Mesothelioma, Lockheed Martin & Brown: A case in the United States Court of Appeals, Second Circuit, ruled on motions related to personal jurisdiction.
The Asbestos, Mesothelioma, Lockheed Martin & Brown case is about a former air force mechanic that was allegedly exposed to asbestos dust – from insulation products – and later developed mesothelioma.
A brief summary of the Asbestos, Mesothelioma, Lockheed Martin & Brown includes:
- Brown seeks to recover in tort from Lockheed and others for injuries suffered by her father as a result of asbestos exposure sustained by him during his work as an Air Force airplane mechanic in locations in Europe and around the United States, but not in Connecticut.
- From approximately 1950 through 1970, Cindy Brown’s father, Walter E. Brown, served as an airplane mechanic in the United States Air Force, working at various bases in Europe and in the United States (i.e., in Alabama, Delaware, Georgia, Illinois, New Mexico, and Michigan)
- His work during those years brought him into close contact with asbestos, a fibrous type of mineral once widely used in insulation products and exposure to which is now understood to be associated with serious health problems.
- Walter Brown was subsequently diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma, a cancer that his daughter describes as “uniquely caused” by exposure to asbestos.
- The Court ruled: Affirmed
