  • Phila. Case Over Asbestos-Infused Talc Could Set Pattern for Series of Claims.

    The case is captioned Brandt v. Bon-Ton Stores, and, although the claims stem from plaintiff Sally Brandt’s use of a talcum powder cosmetic product, the case is being handled in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas’ asbestos program. That’s because Brandt claimed she developed mesothelioma as a result of asbestos alleged to have been contained in the Cashmere Bouquet talcum powder she and her family used between 1954 and 1970.

    Waters Kraus & Paul attorneys Gibbs Henderson, Jonathan George and Patrick Wigle are representing the Brandts.
