Baron & Budd Wins One in Los Angeles

Another Texas firm has success in California. Baron & Budd gets a verdict against Crane Co. for a former Navy gunner's mate with mesothelioma. Sounds like the chrysotile and no substantial exposure defenses didn't work this time. The press release doesn't mention how much fault the jury allocated to Crane versus, oh, pipe insulation and who knows what Crane may have offered in settlement. But, it's usually better to win than to lose.
