NEW YORK - An attorney's affidavit coupled with evidence that a respirator manufacturer pulled certain products does not support a design defect claim in an asbestos action, but the man's failure-to-warn claims may proceed, a New York justice held in an opinion posted Jan. 29 (Malgorzata Wiacek, et al. v. 3M Co., et al., No. 190096/12, N.Y. Sup., New York Co.; 2014 N.Y. Misc. LEXIS 350).
