BRIDGEPORT, Conn. - While nothing in Connecticut case law directly addresses the issue, the state would not hold a manufacturer of multiuse tools liable for a man's exposure to asbestos, a state judge held in denying reconsideration March 20 (Joseph Abate Jr., administrator, et al. v. AAF-McQuay Inc., No. CV 10-6006228 S, Conn. Super., Fairfield at Bridgeport Dist.; 2013 Conn. Super. LEXIS 703).
