    WA court: Old bankruptcy nixes worker's asbestos claim - By CURT WOODWARD, Longview Daily News, WA
    Calling it "a tragic case," the court rejected Herring's argument: That the prominent shipbuilding company had a duty to give Herring's labor union specific notice of the bankruptcy.

    "It certainly would have been desirable for the bankruptcy court to have required such notice, or for Todd to have taken the extra step," Justice Tom Chambers wrote. "But, under current federal case law, it appears to us that Todd had no duty to inform Herring's union."

    Herring worked for subcontractors at Todd's work sites in the 1960s and early '70s. He was a member of the Asbestos Workers Union Local 7.
