A Maryland appeals panel on Aug. 10 affirmed a trial court’s decision to award damages to a man who developed mesothelioma as a result of working on a building project where asbestos insulation was used, ruling that the evidence presented at trial was sufficient for the claims that were made (Wallace & Gale Asbestos Settlement Trust v. William Edward Busch Jr., No. 1055, Sept. Term 2017, Md. Spec. App.).
Mealey's (May 9, 2017, 1:13 PM EDT) -- ST. PAUL, Minn. — A trial court erred by releasing an asbestos settlement trust of any duty to pay a law firm for work on a claim filed with an insolvent insurer despite finding that the firm performed some uncompensated work on that claim for which a promise to pay was implied, a Minnesota panel held May 8 (Faricy Law Firm, P.A., v. API Inc., Asbestos Settlement Trust, No. A16-1539, Minn. App., 2017 Minn. App. Unpub. LEXIS 421).
