The Suoja, Owens-Illinois, Asbestos & Mesothelioma case documents what many oil rig workers, oil platform workers, brake mechanics, navy veterans, seaman and others may face today – past potential direct and secondary exposure to asbestos and mesothelioma. The court ruled: defendants’ motions are GRANTED as unopposed.
A brief summary of the facts include:
- Both cases related to evidence that may be offered at trial.
- In particular, defendant seeks to exclude (1) expert testimony related to the theory that “any exposure” to asbestos, no matter how slight, could have caused the diseases at issue in these cases; (2) evidence of experiments conducted by William Longo and his company Materials Analytical Services that are related to asbestos exposure; and (3) expert testimony from Barry Castleman.
- Defendant argues that all of this evidence is inadmissible under Fed. R. Evid. 702 and Daubert v. Merrell Dow Pharmaceuticals, Inc., 509 U.S. 579 (1993), because it is unreliable.
