In this case, Judge Eddie Bowen was removed from a major asbestos case in which he award $322 million to the asbestos victim. The judge was removed after one of the defendants in the case claimed that Bowen should have never presided over the case due to his family’s history with asbestos. According to the defendant, Bowen’s father suffers from asbestosis as well and has filed two asbestos lawsuits, one which is still pending.

The state Supreme Court determined that these reasons justified removing Judge Bowen from the case. The $322 million asbestos verdict is the largest ever given in an asbestos lawsuit, according to the defendant.
