BPB Client's Asbestos Wrongful Death Case Moves on to the United States Supreme Court

Feb 28, 2018

BCH attorneys representing Jeanette Poage recently filed a brief with the US Supreme Court in opposition to Crane Co.’s latest appeal of the $11.5 million jury verdict.

Jeanette Poage, the widow of James Poage, received $1.5 million for wrongful death and $10 million in punitive damages after her husband died of mesothelioma he contracted after working on a World War II-era ship, the USS Haynsworth, between 1954 and 1958.

Bailey Cowan Heckaman PLLC attorneys Robert Cowan, who is listed as counsel of record, and Aaron Heckaman, together with their highly successful Missouri co-appellate-counsel, Michael Gross and Joe Yeckel, filed the brief in opposition on February 20.
