Rich-Tex, Inc.

This is a settlement for the Asbestos Mesothelioma lawsuit.

San Francisco, CA: (Mar-18-07) Douglas Ivance died on Easter Sunday, April 20, 2003 from respiratory failure caused in part by asbestos and severe asbestos-related pleural disease. He had been a career drywall taper throughout the San Francisco Bay Area for 47 years. Rich-Tex was a manufacturer and supplier of asbestos-containing drywall products, including joint compound, spray texture and acoustical ceiling spray, from 1963 to 1977. The company supplied asbestos-containing drywall products to the majority of Ivance's employers during that time period, when Ivance used the products. Ivance's family filed a products liability lawsuit against Rich-Tex. A San Francisco jury ruled Rich-Tex, Inc.'s asbestos-containing products were defectively designed and assessed $368,787.64 in economic damages and $500,000 in non-economic damages.
