The McMann, Air & Liquid Systems, Navy, Asbestos & Mesothelioma case documents what many navy vets and construction workers (e.g., union carpenter) may face today – past potential direct and secondary exposure to asbestos and mesothelioma. The court ruled on the motion.
To find out more on the case, see Case No. 14-5429 BHS – September 2, 2014.
A brief summary of the facts include:
- Plaintiffs bring this case alleging that Alan McMann contracted pleural mesothelioma as a result of being exposed to asbestos while in the United States Navy from 1961 to 1965 and while he worked as a union carpenter at a variety of work sites from 1966 to 1978.
- After Mr. McMann left the United States Navy, he began to work as a union carpenter apprentice.
- He worked on multiple jobs sites. He testified that the first job (after his military service) that he believed he was exposed to asbestos was when he helped build duplexes in Lacey, Washington in 1968.
- Mr. McMann testified that the next job site that he believed he was exposed to asbestos was at the Centralia Steam Plant (“CSP”), and it is that site that is the subject of this motion. (Worked close to the insulators putting insulation around the steam pipes)
