Asbestos Verdict Upheld

The Maryland Court of Special Appeals affirmed a $1.68 million asbestos award last week. The Plaintiff was exposed to asbestos at a paper mill which led to mesothelioma and carcinoma. Thankfully, and against the odds, the Plaintiff is still alive although his tumors cause him pain; they are not growing.

The case involves interesting twists on the usual asbestos issues of bankruptcy and cross-claims. According to the Maryland Daily Record, the Plaintiff’s lawyer was Michael T. Edmonds of the Law Offices of Peter T. Nicholl. The defendants were represented by David J. Shuster of Kramon & Graham P.A., and Susan E. Smith of Crosswhite, Limbrick & Sinclair LLP.
