Ford Motor Company appeals record asbestos judgment in Australia

Ford Australia has lodged an appeal against a landmark decision to award a former mechanic $840,000 compensation for exposure to asbestos when he worked at Ford car dealerships. Antonino Lo Presti, 58, was the first motor mechanic in Australia to win a successful negligence verdict against a car company for exposure to asbestos, last month in the West Australian Supreme Court. Mr Lo Presti used compressed air to blow out the brake drums and handled asbestos brake linings when brakes were serviced or changed between 1970 and 1971 at two Ford dealerships he worked at.
