Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?





Lawsuit claims Paterson schools negligently handled asbestos

A former Environmental Occupational Health and Safety Officer in Paterson has filed a lawsuit against her former employer due to concerns that asbestos was wrongfully handled in schools with nearly 30,000 students and staffs, an article of nj.com reported on December 7.

Brenda Zemo was relieved from her post after filing a complaint against her employer. In her lawsuit, Zemo claimed her superior, Executive Director Steve Morlino, was negligent and did not enlist qualified personnel when removing asbestos in school facilities. Zemo’s lawsuit then claimed that Morlino’s negligence resulted in several environmental violations, such as hiring unlicensed individuals to remove asbestos-laden debris.

Many families are left struggling when companies become negligent in handling asbestos removal in construction or renovation projects. Asbestos has been known to cause mesothelioma cancer.
