From the Lebanon Daily Register:
Last week, 26th Circuit Court Judge Ralph Jaynes ordered Copeland Scroll Compressors Inc., which is a subsidiary of Emerson Climate Technologies, to pay its employee 56-year-old Philip Berger of Lebanon $28 million in damages after Berger allegedly contracted a lung impairment because of his work conditions. In the days following the judgment, 14 employees and the widower of a deceased employee stepped forward and filed a lawsuit against Copeland and Emerson, as well as the companies involved in the manufacture and distribution of the chemicals that allegedly caused the sicknesses, including Nalco Chemical of Naperville, Ill., Rohm and Haas Company of Philadelphia, Penn., and Socony Mobil Oil Company, Inc., of Irving, Texas.
