The Newport News Circuit Court has received compensation of $ 12 million and $ 12.5 million for damages and reimbursement of about 500 thousand dollars of medical expenses to a former employee of the shipyard in Newport News Shipbuilding, the seventy-two Rubert Minton, who was suffering from mesothelioma, a form of cancer linked to asbestos exposure.

The court - announced the U.S. firm Cooney and Conway, who specializes in asbestos cases - considered responsible for the oil company Exxon Mobil Corporation or damage to health by Minton, who between 1966 and 1977 he served as supervisor of the activities repair of commercial ships and that during the seven years was in charge of new development built by the shipyard. During this period, Minton had worked on 17 oil company Exxon oil tanker under repair.

The law firm stated that the aggregate of 25 million dollars will be automatically reduced to about $ 17.5 million because the law sets a limit of five million dollars the amount of damages that can be accorded a jury.
