Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In plaintiffs' action against the defendants on behalf of a decedent who died of mesothelioma, trial court's grant of defendants' motion for nonsuit is reversed where: 1) the component parts defense does not apply in this case where defendants made separate products with a specific purpose and use; and 2) defendants can be held strictly liable for injury caused by dust emanating from replacement asbestos. Finally, Taylor v. Elliot Turbomachinery Co., Inc. (2009) 171 Cal.App.4th 546 , was wrongly decided as its holding is contrary to the rule that a manufacturer is liable for the dangers of its product's components.
