Morgan v. J-M Manufacturing Co., Inc. (Jan. 27, 2021, No. B297393) Cal.App.5th.

GMSR convinced the Court of Appeal to reverse a $15 million punitive damages award against GMSR’s client in a case involving alleged exposure to asbestos-cement pipe. The Court of Appeal rejected plaintiffs’ argument that there was an exception to the “officer, director, or managing agent” requirement when “the whole corporation” was responsible for distributing a dangerous product.
