International industry group obtains affirmation of dismissal of anxiety damage claims in French Supreme Court

Client(s) International group

Jones Day obtained a favorable decision from the French Supreme Court on behalf of an international industry group with respect to multiple asbestos anxiety damage claims by former employees. The French Supreme Court affirmed the dismissal of anxiety damage claims started by the first group of former employees from the site. This decision is an important step, as it will likely have a positive impact on the large number of remaining anxiety damage proceedings pending before lower labor courts in France.
