This settlement was achieved on behalf of approximately 360 airline pilots who alleged they had been fraudulently induced into continuing to fly for commercial airlines who were soon to be put out of business by a major national commercial airline. The settlement was reached after three days of protracted negotiations. The key to settling the claims was a favorable jury trial verdict received by one of our clients years earlier in the amount of $1.75 million, including $1,000,000 in punitive damages (see below).

This jury verdict was obtained in Marshall County, Kentucky on behalf of the estate of a union pipefitter who died from asbestos-related lung cancer. After settling with numerous other defendants, we proceeded to trial with our client against the two remaining defendants. In addition to awarding the Plaintiffs estate medical and funeral expenses, the jury awarded the estate $5,000,000.00 for the pain and suffering the plaintiff experienced from the time of his diagnosis to the date of his death.
This Campbell County, Kentucky mesothelioma cancer asbestos case was settled after the first day of trial. Eight different defendants each contributed significant amounts of money towards the settlement in order to avoid a potential multi-million dollar jury trial verdict against them. The deceased plaintiff was a career auto mechanic and local politician survived by his long-time wife and disabled son. He contracted mesothelioma cancer from his occupational exposure to asbestos-containing automobile products, including brakes.
The trial judge in the Marshall County, Kentucky case discussed above ordered a new trial because he ruled that the jury in that case should have assigned some responsibility to the other defendants with whom plaintiff had settled prior to trial. Following the conclusion of this second trial, the jury again found in favor of the plaintiff and against the same two defendants. In addition, to compensatory damages, this second jury also assessed $700,000 in punitive damages against defendants.
This verdict was rendered by a jury in federal court against an asbestos gasket manufacturer in favor of the estate of a deceased union pipefitter who died of mesothelioma cancer. The unanimous verdict was rendered after approximately one and a half weeks of trial.
