Asbestos Defense Verdict
Tucker v. Chanel Inc. et al., Multnomah County Case No. 17CV13605
Plaintiff Tucker was diagnosed with mesothelioma in 2016. During her life, Tucker had come into contact with Chanel #5 baby talc powder which she claimed was contaminated with asbestos. She brought strict liability and negligence claims against Chanel, arguing that Chanel manufactured and distributed an unreasonably dangerous product without sufficient warning to the consumer and that as a result, she developed mesothelioma. Tucker sought economic damages for past and future medical bills and other expenses totaling $1 Million. She requested $9 Million in non-economic damages.
Chanel denied that its products contained asbestos or caused any injury to Tucker.
