Johns-Manville Still Making News with Lawsuits

Johns-Manville Corporation is still making news years after a wave of asbestos-related lawsuits forced the company into chapter 11 bankruptcy. Quoted in current lawsuits in McLean County, Illinois and Northampton County, Pennsylvania, Johns-Manville has become part of the culture of mesothelioma lawsuits and other asbestos-related illness cases.

In an $850,000 jury award in McLean County, one of the most damaging pieces of evidence in the lawsuit was a communication sent from another asbestos manufacturer, Bendix to a Johns-Manville employee.

According to the Bloomington, Illinois Pantagraph, "The Bendix employee told the Manville employee he was sending him an article about the harmful effects of exposure to asbestos, and he (the Bendix employee) said, 'My answer to the problem is this: If you have enjoyed a good life working with asbestos, why not die from it?'"

As part of the bankruptcy proceedings, Johns-Manville was required to set up a trust fund for the number of claimants that was supposed to reach only 100,000. Critics at the time argued that the trust fund was woefully under funded and in time, the critics proved correct as the number of claimants blossomed to well over 280,000.
