Mann v. Airco/The BOC Group, Inc. et al., In re: Welding Fume Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 1535 (N.D. Ohio).

(Client: The Lincoln Electric Company)

Barrasso Usdin lawyers secured their fifth consecutive defense verdict for the welding consumable manufacturing industry. After a two-week trial in the United States District Court, Northern District of Ohio, a jury delivered a unanimous verdict in favor of The Lincoln Electric Company, the only remaining defendant in the case. Richard E. Sarver and Craig Isenberg led a national defense team in this case, which is part of a multidistrict litigation proceeding. The trial team has won every case it has tried on behalf of the welding industry. These jury verdicts have resulted in dismissal of thousands of cases by plaintiffs around the country. Previous victories include three other national multi-district litigation cases and a four-plaintiff case in Louisiana state court (Civil District Court, Orleans Parish). Each one of these cases has resulted in unanimous jury defense verdicts. The trial team also included Andrea Mahady Price, Kristin Beckman, and Brad Cousins.
