A brief summary of the facts include:
- Defendant/third-party plaintiff, Huntington Ingalls Incorporated, f/k/a Northrop Grumman Ship Systems, Inc., f/k/a Avondale Industries, Inc. (“Avondale”) appeals the district court’s judgment granting summary judgment in favor of third-party defendant, Executone Systems of La, Inc. (“Executone”). For the reasons discussed below, this appeal is dismissed.
- Plaintiff, Leonard Abadie, Jr., now deceased, filed the underlying suit against multiple defendants, including Avondale, claiming that his exposure to asbestos from various sources resulted in his development of mesothelioma.
- In response to the suit, Avondale filed a third-party demand against various defendants, including Executone. Avondale’s third-party demand against Executone was based on claims of “take-home” or household asbestos exposure by Mr. Abadie, Jr., from asbestos fibers brought home on Mr. Abadie, Sr.’s clothing during Mr. Abadie, Sr.’s employment with Executone from 1961 to 1970.
