By Heather Isringhausen Gvillo | Feb 21, 2017

A Madison County asbestos trial against Hennessy Industries has been adjourned until Feb. 27 in Associate Judge Stephen Stobbs’ courtroom.

The trial will reconvene on Monday at 8 a.m.

Hennessy is represented in the case by Jim Lowrey of Gordon & Rees.

Plaintiffs Janet and Stanley Urban are represented by Tom Hart and Allyson Romani of Shrader & Associates. 

The Urbans are from Michigan, and all of Stanley Urban's alleged exposures occurred in Michigan.

The Urbans filed their complaint in March 2013, alleging Stanley Urban was exposed to asbestos-containing products while working at various auto dealerships from the 1960s to 1974 and while working at several schools as an auto technology teacher from 1975 to present.

More specifically, Urban claims he was exposed to asbestos while using Hennessy’s brake grinders.

Urban was diagnosed with mesothelioma both above and below his diaphragm in January 2013.
