$6.3 million Oregon verdict in living mesothelioma case

Jackie Dillard worked as a Maintenance Mechanic, Millwright and Supervisor at an aluminum facility from 1960 to 2005. He alleged exposure to asbestos from pipe insulation, gaskets, packing, blowers, motors, friction material and other mechanical systems at the aluminum plant. John Crane was the only defendant at trial, and was given a 12% liability allocation under Oregon’s several liability scheme. We expect the parties will be arguing over the application of Oregon’s $500,000 noneconomic damages cap.
