In Genereux v. American Beryllia Corp., 577 F.3d 350 (1st Cir. 2009), plaintiff allegedly contracted chronic beryllium disease (“CBD”) from workplace exposure to beryllium dust. She and members of her family sued firms that had supplied berylliumcontaining products to her former employer in Massachusetts Superior Court for negligence, breach of warranty, failure to warn, fraudulent concealment, violation of Mass. Gen. L. ch. 93A (the Massachusetts unfair and deceptive trade practices statute) and loss of consortium. Defendants removed the case to the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts based on 42 U.S.C. § 1442(a)(1), which permits removal of any action against a person acting under a federal officer.
