In this case, the plaintiff alleged that the decedent, William Robinson, died from pleural mesothelioma as a result of his asbestos exposure while working at Allied Chemical from 1968 to 1998.  Defendant Flowserve Corporation, f/k/a The Duriron Company, which manufactured Duriron/Durco pumps and valves, was represented by Chris Massenburg and Max Swetman of Manion Gaynor & Manning LLP and local counsel Jeff Meyer of Murane & Bostwick.  Following a three week trial, the plaintiff’s counsel sought a $10 million verdict.  However, the jury ruled in favor of the defense, finding that the company was not negligent and its products were not defective.
