Cuomo v. Crane Co.

<> Cuomo v. Crane Co. - 11/13/14. In the U.S. Court of Appeals, Second Circuit, Case No. 13-4510. Crane argues that the district court erred by requiring evidence that the Navy either affirmatively proscribed or dictated the content of asbestos warnings as the basis of Crane's federal contractor defense. The Panel said, "Because we agree that Crane has asserted a colorable federal contractor defense despite the absence of such evidence, we reverse."
