A woman has filed an asbestos suit on behalf of a recently deceased man against 37 defendant corporations, claiming the lung cancer with which the man was diagnosed was wrongfully caused.

Clara Conley claims Albert Conley was diagnosed with the disease June 29, 2007, according to a lawsuit filed Jan. 12 in St. Clair County Circuit Court.

The complaint does not indicate where Conley resides.

Clara Conley says Albert Conley worked from 1955 until 1956 as a machinist at Paper Ball Company, as a printer at Beaumont Enterprise and Journal from 1956 until 1957, as an aviation machinist mate in the U.S. Navy from 1957 until 1977 and as a self-employed salesman from 1977 until 2007.

Clara Conley states Albert Conley's exposure was foreseeable and should have been anticipated by the defendants, according to the lawsuit.

She claims Albert Conley's disease was caused after he was exposed to and inhaled, ingested or otherwise absorbed asbestos fibers.

Clara Conley alleges the asbestos-related disease caused Albert Conley to incur substantial medical costs. Albert Conley also experienced great physical pain and mental anguish as a result of the disease, Clara Conley claims in the lawsuit.

Lung cancer hindered and prevented Albert Conley from pursuing his normal course of employment, according to the suit.

As a result, he lost large sums of money, Clara Conley claims.

Because of Albert Conley's death, his family has been deprived of his support and has lost his society, the suit states.

His family spent substantial amounts on funeral and burial costs, according to the complaint.

In the six-count lawsuit, Clara Conley seeks sums in excess of $150,000, economic damages of more than $50,000 and compensatory damages of more than $100,000.

He also seeks punitive damages in an amount sufficient to punish the defendants for their misconduct and to deter similarly situated parties from committing like acts of misconduct in the future.

He is represented by Randy L. Gori and Barry Julian of Gori, Julian and Associates in Edwardsville.

St. Clair County Circuit Court case number: 10-L-15.
