CHICAGO – On May 25, 2022, in Cook County Illinois, lead trial attorney Thomas Burns, second chair Joseph Rejano, and Steven Carlson of von Briesen & Roper, s.c, won a defense verdict in a wrongful death mesothelioma case.

The firm client was a manufacturer of control valves and the allegations involved exposure to asbestos containing gaskets. Plaintiff’s counsel called Dr. David Rosner, Dr. David Robb, and Dr. Howard Kipen to testify on behalf of their client. The Foley & Mansfield trial team called industrial hygienist, John Spencer, and pathologist Victor Roggli to support their defense. Plaintiff asked for an award in excess of $27,000,000 but the jury found no liability and attributed nothing to the firm client.
