A brief summary of the facts include:
- Plaintiff filed suit in state court on January 31, 2014.
- In his complaint, Plaintiff asserts various claims of negligence, arguing that he inhaled asbestos fibers and contracted mesothelioma as a result of direct and indirect contact with his father, a longtime employee of the Richland County Landfill (“Landfill”) who had worked with asbestos and asbestos-containing products.
- On March 7, 2014, the Landfill, with the consent of the two other defendants, Waste Management, Inc.,and Waste Management of South Carolina, Inc., (collectively “Defendants”) removed the case to this court.
- Defendants submit that this court has subject-matter jurisdiction because the Landfill, in the disposal of asbestos-containing wastes and soils, was acting under the direction of an officer of the United States within the meaning of 28 U.S.C. § 1442(a)(l).
