Foley & Mansfield Successfully Defends Colgate-Palmolive in Talc Suit

Foley & Mansfield partners Gary D. Sharp and Peter M. Mularczyk successfully defended Colgate-Palmolive Company in a four week trial in the Los Angeles Superior Court, Alhambra Division.

The plaintiff, Diane Henson, sued Colgate, claiming that her use of Cashmere Bouquet talcum powder caused her to develop mesothelioma, an incurable cancer generally related to asbestos exposure. After the close of all the evidence and just prior to closing arguments, the Court granted a verdict in favor of Colgate, finding that plaintiffs had not produced sufficient evidence to allow a jury to decide that Colgate was at fault.

Sharp and Mularczyk were assisted by Keith Ameele, Lou Klein, Kim Rivera and Nicole Vongchanglor, all with the firm’s Los Angeles office.
