O’Neil v. Crane

Date: August 11, 2011

California Supreme Court

The issue of whether a defendant such as a pump and valve maker can be held liable for asbestos products made by another company and affixed post-sale such as by the Navy is frequently litigated.  The First District appellate court chose to follow Washington State, holding that manufacturers are responsible only for their own products.  The plaintiffs have appealed.

Status:  PENDING.  Amicus letter brief filed 11/12/09.  Court granted cert petition 12/24/09.  Amicus brief filed 2/22/10.
