9th Circuit Affirms Award of Summary Judgment to 3 Asbestos Defendants

  • Opinion

SAN FRANCISCO –– The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit has affirmed an award of summary judgment for three asbestos defendants, ruling in part that testimony from a plaintiff expert in a separate case was “too generic to create a fact issue for this case and these defendants.”

In the Oct. 14 opinion, the 9th Circuit further found that there was no evidence that the defendants had provided the asbestos-containing replacement parts.

Plaintiffs Jeffrey Lannes and Kristi Johnson appealed the federal court’s award of summary judgment to Flowserve U.S. inc., Jerguson Gage & Valve Co., and Warren Pumps.
