After three days of deliberation, a McLean County jury awarded the family of a deceased Bloomington woman more than $2 million related to her exposure to asbestos.
Juanita Rodarmel contracted mesothelioma after being exposed to asbestos when she laundered the clothing of her first husband, Leslie Corry, a worker at the former Union Asbestos & Rubber Company.
Corry worked at the Bloomington plant, later called UNARCO Industries Inc., during the 1950s.
The jury also awarded $100,000 in punitive damages against Pneumo Abex, LLC and $400,000 against Honeywell International, Inc.
Attorneys for the family argued that the two companies conspired with other firms, including UNARCO, Johns-Manville, Raybestos-Manhattan, Owens-Illinois, Owens Corning and Metropolitan Life Insurance Company to suppress information about the hazards of asbestos. The firms agreed not to warn employees and customers about those dangers, said the Rodarmels’ lawyers.
