The Ahnert, Foster Wheeler, Asbestos & Mesothelioma case documents what many asbestos exposure victims and others may face today – past potential direct and secondary exposure to asbestos and mesothelioma.
The court ruled:
- IT IS ORDERED: that plaintiff’s motion for leave to file a surreply is granted; that defendant CBS Corporation’s motion for judgment on the pleadings is granted; that defendant General Electric’s motion for judgment on the pleadings is granted; that CBS Corporation and General Electric (GE) are dismissed.
A brief summary of the facts include:
- In 2010, plaintiff, Beverly Ahnert, and her husband, Daniel Ahnert, filed a lawsuit (the “2010 lawsuit”) in the Eastern District of Wisconsin, and that case was transferred to the MDL in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.
- The complaint alleged that Daniel Ahnert was exposed to asbestos manufactured by various defendants, including General Electric and Westinghouse Electric Corporation for whom CBS Corporation (“CBS”) was responsible.
- Specifically, the Ahnerts alleged that: (1) Ahnert was diagnosed with a non-malignant asbestos-related disease called asbestosis; (2) Ahnert was exposed to asbestos from General Electric and CBS products; (3) all alleged exposures to asbestos that Ahnert received contributed to his asbestosis; and (4) the alleged exposure to asbestos from these defendants was a cause of Ahnert’s asbestosis.
