Los Angeles Attorneys Joseph Macha and Maryam Danishwar Obtain Defense Verdict in Los Angeles County Superior Court

Joseph Macha and Maryam Danishwar of Foley and Mansfield’s Los Angeles office received a defense verdict on behalf of a sub-contractor client after a 3 ½ week jury trial in Los Angeles County Superior Court. 

Plaintiff was an employee of a Southern California utility company who worked primarily on pipelines.  Plaintiff sued our client, a sub-contractor to the utility company at issue, claiming that Defendant's removal of an asbestos containing product exposed him to asbestos, causing his asbestosis.  

The jury deliberated for 1½ days before returning a defense verdict on September 26, 2014 finding that our client did not act in a negligent fashion.
