Michael Block obtained a defense verdict in a reverse-bifurcated asbestosis matter for Union Carbide

Working with National Counsel, Michael Block obtained a defense verdict in a reverse-bifurcated asbestosis matter for Union Carbide, in late November, 2006. Although the jury found damages in the amount of $1M, they ultimately found no liability on U.C., the lone remaining defendant. U.C. demonstrated that notwithstanding Plaintiff's identification of U.C. products from a "picture book," it had not sold product to Plaintiff's employer, where the exposure was alleged to have occurred.
