Last month, the New Jersey Supreme Court denied an appeal filed by Exxon Mobile regarding a mesothelioma lawsuit. In the lawsuit, Exxon Mobile was ruled responsible for exposing a husband and wife to asbestos and was ordered to pay the wife, Bonnie Anderson, $7 million.
Bonnie Anderson’s husband, John Anderson, worked at the Exxon Mobile Liden Bayway Refinery for decades removing asbestos insulation. During the years he worked for Exxon, Bonnie Anderson was exposed to asbestos when washing her husband’s work clothes.
In 2001, Anderson was diagnosed with peritoneal mesothelioma. Peritoneal mesothelioma differs from the most common form of mesothelioma, pleural mesothelioma, in that it affects the lining of the abdomen, rather than the lungs.
