NBF attorneys Rod Fonda and Noah Jaffe obtained a result that is increasingly difficult to obtain: summary judgment dismissal of a defendant in an asbestos case filed in State Court. Rod and Noah represented a marine parts supplier in Florida who had nothing to do with the Seattle shipyard worker’s asbestos, and therefore their client should have been dismissed—but judges in King County are so leery of overreaching appellate decisions to make sure that mesothelioma victims have some available legal recourse, that such dismissals, no matter how meritorious, have become rare. Well done Rod and Noah!!
