As previously discussed here, and here, the estate of Amanda Satterfield brought suit against Alcoa for her death from mesothelioma at the age of 25. The suit alleged that her death was the result of secondhand exposure to asbestos clinging to her father’s work clothes, who was an Alcoa employee. In September 2008, the Tennessee Supreme Court ruled that Ms. Satterfield’s complaint withstands a motion for judgment on the pleadings, finding that an employer owes a duty to those who regularly and for extended periods of time came into close contact with the asbestos-contaminated work clothes of its employees to prevent them from being exposed to a foreseeable and unreasonable risk of harm.
