New York, NY (PRWEB) December 19, 2007
Belluck & Fox is pleased to announce that Judge James W. McCarthy of the Oswego County Supreme Court has ruled in favor of its client Paul Tuttle. Along with a number of other companies who sold asbestos-containing products, Belluck & Fox sued Gardner Denver on behalf of Mr. Tuttle for allegedly exposing him to pumps containing asbestos during his service with the United Status Navy. Gardner Denver moved for dismissal against Mr. Tuttle's case on a number of issues, but Judge McCarthy denied their request, ruling that Belluck & Fox had presented strong evidence that warranted a trial (Paul Tuttle, et al. v. A.W. Chesterton Co., et al., No. 2006-5602, N.Y. Sup., Oswego Co.).
Judge McCarthy handles all of the asbestos cases in Syracuse, Oswego, Watertown, Utica and Rome.
Mr. Tuttle is represented by Joseph W. Belluck of Belluck & Fox.
Mr. Belluck said, "Companies like Gardner Denver should do the right thing and pay the veterans it exposed to asbestos--its right for our clients and for Gardner Denver's shareholders."
