Calewarts, International Paper, Asbestos & Mesothelioma

asbestos,mesothelioma,cancerCalewarts, International Paper, Asbestos & Mesothelioma: A case in the Court of Appeals of Wisconsin, District III ruled on an appeal related to dismissal.

The Calewarts, International Paper, Asbestos & Mesothelioma case documents what many asbestos exposure victims (e.g., plant workers, printing press operators etc.) and others may face today – past potential direct and secondary exposure to asbestos and mesothelioma.  

The court ruled: For the foregoing reasons, we reverse the judgment dismissing Calewarts’ claims.

A brief summary of the case includes:

  • June Calewarts’ husband, Robert, was employed by Milprint from 1950 until 1991.
  • Milprint produced and printed candy wrappers, snack bags, and cheese pouches.
  • Robert operated printing presses on the fourth floor of Milprint’s De Pere, Wisconsin facility from 1950 until the early 1970s. He then worked as an oiler for several years, working on every floor of the facility. He returned to press work by 1975.
  • He worked in the molding department, also on the fourth floor, from 1980 to 1985.
  • Finally, he worked in the cheese department on the second floor of the De Pere facility until 1990, at which point Milprint’s operations were transferred to a new facility.
  • The printing presses at the De Pere facility were partially steam powered.
  • There were similar steam pipes on the other three floors of the De Pere facility.
  • Throughout the facility, the steam pipes were covered with white insulation.
  • In November 2008, Robert died of malignant pleural mesothelioma.
