Ill. court reverses $17.8M asbestos verdict
BY BETHANY KRAJELIS
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (Legal Newsline) – A split panel of the Illinois Fourth District Appellate Court has reversed a $17.8 million verdict in a McLean County asbestos conspiracy case.
The majority of the panel relied on the Fourth District’s 2011 ruling in Rodarmel v. Pneumo Abex to come to its conclusion that plaintiff Jayne Menssen did not present sufficient evidence to prove that Honeywell International and Pneumo-Abex conspired with other corporations to suppress the health hazards of asbestos exposure.
