In addition to the above mentioned, it was believed and further alleged that decedent was exposed to asbestos fibers, particles, and dust as a result of construction remodel work performed on his own personal residences and during the time employed as a maintenance worker at the JV School District, which occurred from the mid-1960s until the late 1970s. As a result of such work, decedent mixed, sanded, and applied joint compound products manufactured/supplied/sold by the following defendants: BI Inc./PM International Inc., sued individually and as successor-in-interest to PM Inc. (BD joint compound); GP Corporation (GP joint compound); and KG Company Inc. (KG joint compound). Upon information and belief, such joint compound did not have a warning on the containers regarding the dangers associated with asbestos, and decedent, as such, did not protect himself with a mask when working with the joint compound products.
According to Defendant: Death; loss of consortium.
