In a Missouri wrongful death suit, RDM attorneys Vince Gunter and Michael Moss represented a defendant manufacturer of brake arcing and lathe equipment that allegedly exposed plaintiff’s decedent to asbestos fibers during the scope of his work as an automotive mechanic. The manufacturer asserted that plaintiff’s claims were time-barred by the one-year California statute of limitations, which should be borrowed by the Missouri court because the decedent died in California. Plaintiff contested the application of the California statute of limitations, and argued that the longer Missouri statute of limitations should apply. The City of St. Louis Circuit Court sided with the defendant manufacturer, and ordered summary judgment its favor.
