NEW ORLEANS – The Dallas-based trial law firm DeLuca & Nemeroff is announcing a $7.55 million jury verdict on behalf of a Louisiana man who was diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma following decades of working around asbestos-containing materials at two manufacturing plants. This verdict is believed to be among the largest individual mesothelioma verdicts in Louisiana.

Orleans Parish jurors deliberated for half a day on Thursday, Sept. 8, 2011, before returning the verdict in favor of 66-year-old Thomas M. Kenney of St. Tammany Parish. Jurors agreed that defendants Rexam Beverage Can Company (formerly American Can) and asbestos product manufacturers John Crane Inc. and Haveg Inc. were negligent and responsible for exposing Mr. Kenney to dangerous levels of asbestos.

The jury found that Mr. Kenney, a Slidell resident, was exposed to dangerous levels of asbestos fibers while he worked at an American Can facility in New Orleans between 1964 and 1976, and while working as a pipefitter and machinist for Tenneco in Chalmette between 1977 and 1988. John Crane Inc. made and supplied asbestos gaskets and Haveg Inc. supplied asbestos-containing piping to Tenneco while Mr. Kenney was employed there.

Mr. Kenney, who is married with three grown children, was diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma in July 2010. Mesothelioma is an incurable form of cancer caused exclusively by asbestos exposure.

“Thomas Kenney worked as a loyal and valuable employee who deserved to be able to do his job in a safe environment with warnings on the products he handled,” says his attorney Rick Nemeroff, co-founder of DeLuca & Nemeroff. “This is an important verdict that will go a long way to helping make sure that Mr. Kenney and his family can get the support they need to deal with his grave health problems.”

The trial team representing Mr. Kenney was led by Mr. Nemeroff and firm trial attorney Barrett Naman, as well as local counsel Mickey Landry and Frank Swarr of New Orleans-based Landry & Swarr.
