Los Angeles jury rejects $26 million asbestos suit

Did the plaintiffs ask for too much? What they got was a defense verdict: "The jury found that William James Goebel, who died at age 78, was exposed to asbestos from Kaiser Gypsum and Ford, but that there was no defect in the design of those defendants' products. The jurors concluded Goebel was not exposed to asbestos from Daimler Trucks." Five other defendants had settled out earlier. [Cynthia Lambert, California Civil Justice]
