$24.2 Million Verdict in Asbestos Suit Against Honeywell International
A Miami Herald article by Patrick Danner notes a Dade County jury verdict of almost $24.2 million for Stephen Guilder in an asbestos suit against Honeywell International. The plaintiff, a fifty-year-old surgeon, was exposed to asbestos when he worked on a farm as a teenager, repairing tractors and other farm equipment, where he was exposed to brake pads made with asbestos. The plaintiff's theory was that exposure resulted in a rare, fatal type of cancer, peritoneal mesothelioma,. The verdict was the largest compensatory damages verdict in a Florida asbestos case involving a single defendant. Honeywell International is the parent of Bendix, the brake maker.
