  • Motion to Reconsider

NEW ORLEANS –– A couple whose benzene claims were dismissed after a federal court found that expert testimony used to support the lawsuit was inadmissible has filed a motion to reconsider.

The plaintiffs filed the motion Dec. 12 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana, arguing that the court wrongfully excluded the testimony of Dr. Bhaskar Kura.

Craig and Toni Moore asserted the underlying claims. They allege that that Craig's multiple myeloma was caused by exposure to benzene-containing paint products with which he worked when employed as painter from 1981 to 2005.
