A picture of a courthouseA family in Pennsylvania was awarded $7.25 million after a loved one was exposed to asbestos when he worked on the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard more than 40 years ago and later died of cancer.

A jury found that Connecticut-based Rockbestos, now RSCC Wire & Cable LLC, was partially responsible for exposing Edward Merwitz, of Langhorne, Penn. to asbestos.

His family had previously settled with eight other defendants before its trial against Rockbestos.

Merwitz worked at the naval shipyard from 1965 to 1970 on its warships. Rockbestos sold electrical wires, pumps and motors found at the shipyard.
