Adams v. Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co.

Date: August 11, 2011

Ohio Supreme Court VICTORY!

The Ohio Supreme Court will determine whether take home asbestos exposure claims are barred under the premises liability section of Ohio's asbestos medical criteria law and also fail under a negligence theory because no duty is owed to persons exposed off-site.  The intermediate appellate court ruled that the statute barred the claims. 

Status:  DECIDED.  Amicus brief filed on 09/21/09.  Court ruled in favor of the employer on 6/10/10.
