The case is filed in the United States District Court, Court of Appeals of California, Second District, Division Three and documents what many Navy veterans face today – past potential asbestos exposure and mesothelioma. The Plaintiff won the appeal.
A brief summary of the facts include:
- Kent worked as a maintenance machinist at the Naval Air Rework Facility (NARF) at North Island in the San Diego Bay from 1961 to 1987, with the exception of a four-year period from 1966 to 1970 when he served in the United States Air Force.
- NARF was responsible for maintaining and repairing United States Navy ships and aircraft. Warren manufactured and supplied pumps, including some pumps with asbestos in some components.
- Kent’s work at NARF included maintaining and repairing pumps by removing and replacing gaskets and packing, some of which allegedly contained asbestos. He eventually developed malignant mesothelioma.
