    Delcambre worked as a carpenter and general laborer for various employers," which caused him to suffer from…industrial dust diseases caused by breathing the asbestos-containing products," the suit said.

    The suit alleges the defendants in the lawsuit were negligent for failing to adequately test their asbestos-laced products before flooding the market with dangerous goods and for failing to warn the consumer of the dangers of asbestos exposure.

    Some of the defendants listed in the suit include aerospace giant Lockheed Martin, Union Carbide Corp. and iron supplier Zurn Industries.

    In addition, the petition faults Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing Corp. (3M Corporation) and American Optical Corp. for producing defective masks that failed to provide respiratory protection.
