Smith, Asbestos & Mesothelioma: A recent case in the Supreme Court, New York county ruled on a motion for summary judgment.

The Storey, A.O. Smith, Asbestos & Mesothelioma case documents what many Navy veterans, oil refinery workers, auto mechanic, mechanics, construction workers, tile setters and others may face today – past potential direct and secondary exposure to asbestos and mesothelioma.

The court ruled: ORDERED that Goodrich Corporation’s motion for summary judgment is denied.

A brief summary of the facts include:

  • In this asbestos personal injury action, defendant Goodrich Corporation (“Goodrich”) moves for summary judgment pursuant to CPLR 3212 on the ground that plaintiff John F. Storey has not provided any admissible evidence that he was exposed to an asbestos-containing Goodrich floor title. For the reasons set forth below, the motion is denied.
  • Mr. Storey was diagnosed with mesothelioma on or about August 5, 2013 and commenced this action on August 14, 2013.
  • At his deposition Mr. Storey described his work as a ceramic tile helper and ceramic tile setter at construction sites throughout New York City. He testified that he sustained asbestos exposure from the beginning of his career in 1960 through the mid-1980s, both from his personal use of such tiles and as a bystander from work performed by carpenters in his presence.
  • Mr. Storey repeatedly identified floor tiles manufactured by Goodrich, and others, as sources of his asbestos exposure.
