Negligence Suit against Pharmacia Corp. Dismissed
Jan 8 15
A lawsuit filed by a widow who blamed her husband's cancer death on exposure to chemicals made by a Pharmacia Corp. predecessor was dismissed. The dismissal came after three days of jury selection in St. Louis County Circuit Court for what was expected to be up to a five-week trial. Plaintiff's attorney John Simon, of The Simon Law Firm, declined to comment on whether the dismissal meant a settlement had been reached. Defense attorney Carol Rutter of Husch Blackwell did not immediately return a phone call. Plaintiff Helen Hammonds claimed her late husbands exposure to polychlorinated biphenyls, or PCBs, caused the North Carolina man's death in 2008 from lymphohematopoietic cancer. Congress banned the manufacture of PCBs, a chemical compound used for products such insulating fluids, ink and copy paper, in 1977. The lawsuit alleged the original Monsanto, Monsanto Chemical Co., made PCBs from 1935 until the ban and dumped PCBs into the environment. In court documents, defense attorneys said that William Hammonds condition was caused by other factors; that Old Monsanto followed laws and regulations in effect at the time it manufactured PCB products; and that production conformed with scientific and medical knowledge at the time.
Missouri Court of Appeals Eastern District Sends Pharmacia's Pollution Case Back to Circuit Court
Jul 24 13
Missouri Court of Appeals Eastern District sent Pharmacia Corp.'s pollution case back to circuit court. St. Louis County Circuit Court Judge Barbara W. Wallace had granted summary judgment last June in favor of Pharmacia Corp., holding that four plaintiffs’ claims that the chemical company was negligent in releasing cancer-causing polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) into the environment were not sufficient for a trial. The suit originally named Monsanto as well as Pharmacia, but Monsanto has been dismissed from the action, according to the July 23, 2013 opinion reversing and remanding the circuit court decision. The appeals court found that PCBs were intended when they were manufactured for “open use,” which meant that they would likely be released into the environment, according to the unanimous opinion written by Presiding Judge Robert G. Dowd Jr. with Judges Roy L. Richter and Angela T. Quigless concurring. The opinion notes that the judges were looking to California law in evaluating the merits of the plaintiff’s points, since the injuries took place in California and the plaintiffs live there.
