An Ohio court, applying Kentucky law, affirmed in Martin v. Cincinnati Gas & Electric Co. (PDF:97KB), that it was not foreseeable until about 1965 that people could be injured when employees carried asbestos away from the workplace on their clothes. Thus, an employer was not liable to an employee`s son who claimed to have developed mesothelioma as a result of such exposure during the 1950s and 60s. The court held that the risk of ``take home`` or bystander exposure was not foreseeable before 1965 based on the available ``common knowledge at the time and in the community.`` In particular, the court noted that plaintiff`s expert conceded that the first studies of bystander exposure were not published until 1965.
