Plaintiffs' litigation firm Motley Rice LLC announced today that a jury in Baltimore Circuit Court has found General Electric Company (NYSE:GE) liable in the death of three former Bethlehem Steel plant workers. All three died of lung cancer that the plaintiffs argued was caused in part by the brakes on overhead crane and mill motors at the Sparrows Point mill. The jury awarded more than $3.9 million dollars to the families.

"As co-counsel for the victims' families, we are very pleased that the jury recognized General Electric's responsibility to these families for the asbestos-lined brake products it sold," stated Fritz Jekel, a Motley Rice attorney who tried the case.

Motley Rice co-counseled with The Law Offices of Peter Nicholl of Maryland on this case.

General Electric Company (GE) is a diversified industrial corporation. It is engaged in developing, manufacturing and marketing a variety of products for the generation, transmission, distribution, control and utilization of electricity. It is headquartered in Fairfield, CT.

Mount Pleasant, SC (July 13, 2007) - The world's largest trial bar, the American Association for Justice (formerly the Association of Trial Lawyers of America), will present Motley Rice LLC co-founding attorney, Ron Motley, with the David S. Shrager President's Award on Tuesday, July 17, 2007 at the association's Annual Convention being held at the Hyatt Regency in Chicago, Illinois.

The Shrager Award is given to an American trial lawyer who is consistently in the forefront of litigation by creatively and ingeniously using litigation to safeguard and protect American consumers and the civil justice system.

For more than three decades, Motley has been a driving force of major complex litigation. His groundbreaking efforts achieved several critical breakthroughs in justice for asbestos victims, including occupational and household exposures. Motley spearheaded the historic litigation against the tobacco industry, serving as lead trial counsel for 28 states which resulted in the largest settlement in the history of civil litigation.

Currently, Motley continues to advance cutting-edge litigation as lead counsel for more than 6,500 family members and survivors of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, designed to bankrupt terrorism and seek justice against al Qaeda's financiers. He is also focused on tainted tissue litigation efforts, serving as co-lead on the tainted tissue MDL and leading Motley Rice's team that represents victims of an alleged body harvesting scheme.

David Shrager was an accomplished trial lawyer specializing in complex civil litigation. Throughout his life, he worked to protect the rights of injured victims, representing consumers, healthcare workers and individuals, earning the reputation of ?a lawyer who always tried to help people.? A former President of the Association of Trial Lawyers of America (now the American Association for Justice), Shrager also served as chair of several of the association's committees. He is also a founding member of Trial Lawyers for Public Justice. AAJ established the David S. Shrager President's Award in 2006 in honor of Shrager's lifelong dedication to the legal profession.
