CHARLOTTE, N.C. - A federal action alleging occupational and take-home asbestos exposure from a husband's clothing differs sufficiently from a state court action alleging take-home exposure from the decedent's father's clothing to avoid the abstention doctrine, a North Carolina federal judge held March 27 (Richard Eric Taylor, et al. v. Alcatel-Lucent USA Inc., No. 13-56, W.D. N.C.; 2014 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 40946).
