CHICAGO – The $32 million personal injury verdict awarded in August 2010 to a flavor-industry employee stricken with bronchiolitis obliterans was overturned Oct. 4 by a unanimous First District Fourth Division Illinois Appellate Court panel, which held that the trial court erred in directing a verdict on the statute of limitations defense (Gerardo Solis v. BASF Corp., No. 11-875, Ill. App., 4th Div.). A complimentary copy of the opinion is available here - Solis v. BASF Opinion.
