Thomas A. Tully Sues Lorillard Tobacco Co, Georgia-Pacific LLC, Metropolitan Life Insurance Company and Union Carbide Corporation

The estate of former Dubuque mayor Thomas A. Tully filed a suit against Lorillard Tobacco Co. and 14 others for Tully, who died at the age of 69 in April 2010. The trial is set for Jan. 14, 2014, with an estimated length of two weeks. The executors of the estate are Joan Tully and her children, Thomas P. Tully and Maureen Lindecker. The elder Thomas Tully contracted mesothelioma, a common affliction for those who inhaled smoke from Kent Micronite cigarettes in the 1950s. Besides Lorillard, the petition names Georgia-Pacific LLC, Union Carbide Corporation and Metropolitan Life Insurance Company among the defendants, along with "various unknown John Does" to be named when identified. The estate alleges negligence, strict liability for manufacture and sale of defective products, breach of express and implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for intended purposes, conspiracy, fraud and loss of consortium. Among other claims, the Tullys say the companies failed to adequately test their products, and that, specifically, Metropolitan Life conspired with its insureds and other asbestos product manufacturers and distributors to suppress and distort information. The Tully family is asking for an unspecified amount of past and future damages. The defendants have until mid-April to designate between one and three people as liaison counsel who will coordinate motions and pre-trial matters.
