We are pleased to announce that the firm has obtained a defense verdict in an asbestos case tried in New York City, a very difficult jurisdiction for defendants. Charles Zammit claimed he was exposed to asbestos and alleged his lung cancer and asbestosis were wrongfully caused by asbestos. The jury concluded that his cancer was caused solely by cigarette smoking.
Suzanne Halbardier tried the case along side Daniel Griffin of O’Connell, Tivin, Miller & Burns, LLC on behalf of John Crane Inc. Plaintiff was represented the Wilentz, Goldman & Spitzer P.A.
