Merlin Olsen's Family Settles Asbestos Lawsuit

Los Angeles, CA: The family of Merlin Olsen, a Hall of Fame football player and actor, has reached a settlement in their asbestos lawsuit. Olsen's family alleged in their suit that Olsen was exposed to asbestos-containing products throughout the course of his career working on construction sites, which he did in his youth. The suit was filed against several asbestos companies that the family say caused the rare form of cancer Olsen developed late in life. The settlement includes 10 companies that made or used the asbestos-containing products.

A notice of settlement was filed by the attorneys for Olsen's wife and children in Los Angeles. No further details were provided. Olsen, who was a member of the Los Angeles Rams "Fearsome Foursome" in the 1960s, died in March 2010 after losing his fight against asbestos mesothelioma.
