Deborah Hankinson, Rick Thompson, and Jennifer Stagen successfully convinced the Texas Supreme Court to affirm the court of appeals’s take-nothing judgment in favor of their client, Georgia-Pacific Corporation. In this significant asbestos case watched by many legal commentators across the country, the Supreme Court defined the substantial-factor causation standard for mesothelioma cases. The Court ultimately concluded that the evidence was legally insufficient to prove that plaintiff’s alleged exposure to asbestos from Georgia-Pacific joint compound was a substantial factor in causing the plaintiff’s mesothelioma. Deborah Hankinson argued the case before the Supreme Court. See Bostic v. Georgia-Pacific Corp., No. 10-0775, 2014 WL 3797159 (Tex. July 11, 2014).
