Vanni v. AMF Bowling Centers, Inc., et al. (Asbestos Exposure)

Donald Vanni owned a bowling alley in California from 1957 to 1986. As part of his business, Vanni sold custom bowling balls into which he drilled finger holes. One of the brands he sold was Ebonite, which contained asbestos supplied by Honeywell predecessor Bendix in the form of discarded brake lining dust. Vanni alleged his exposure to the asbestos-laden balls caused him to develop pericardial mesothelioma. In April 2019, a jury awarded Vanni’s family nearly $4.4 million in damages, for which Honeywell was found to be 40 percent responsible.
