Foley & Mansfield Clients Awarded Non-Suit After Six Weeks of Trial

Foley & Mansfield Clients Awarded Non-Suit After Six Weeks of Trial

In a recent multi-party asbestos lawsuit brought by plaintiffs Nicholaas Schildknegt and his spouse, Brigitte Schildknegt, two Foley & Mansfield trial teams from the firm’s Oakland office – ­each representing a separate defendant in the matter – were successful in obtaining a dismissal of the plaintiffs’ case.

Attorneys Gary D. Sharp, Robert M. Menchini, Melissa M. Corica and Andrew L. Sharp represented the Parsons Corporation in this lawsuit, with Thomas J. Tarkoff and Lauren C. McLeod representing another party to the suit, a global engineering and contracting company. 

In the suit, Mr. Schildknegt claimed that his terminal cancer was caused, in part, by his exposure to asbestos-containing products that were used in his work area. After six weeks of trial, the court granted a Non-Suit to both Foley & Mansfield clients, finding that the plaintiffs had failed to present sufficient evidence to go to the jury. The trial took place in the Long Beach Division of the Los Angeles Superior Court.
