JURY VERDICT | Jury awards $14 MILLION in asbestos case | DADE COUNTY

DADE COUNTY – According the the Miami Herald (5/21, Morales) reports, “A Miami-Dade jury has awarded a Sarasota man more than $14 million after deciding that the asbestos he inhaled in the 1970s caused his deadly abdominal cancer.
Jurors found that chemical giant Union Carbide was negligent for selling asbestos fibers to other companies, which had used the fibers to make joint compounds used by construction companies — such as the one William Aubin’s family owned.”
Jurors “also found that four of the compound manufacturers, including Georgia-Pacific, share some of the responsibility for causing Aubin’s illness.”
