Quisenberry v. Huntington Ingalls Inc. (P)

An employer owes a duty of care to an employee’s family member who alleges exposure to asbestos from the employee’s work clothes, where the family member alleges the employer’s negligence allowed asbestos fibers to be regularly transported away from the place of employment to the employee’s home.

The court reached this conclusion in answer to a question certified from federal court. Three justices dissented.

Quisenberry v. Huntington Ingalls Inc. (P), No. 171494, Oct. 11, 2018. SCV (Millette) from EDVA.
