Papp v. Fore-Kast Sales Co Inc., 15-2851

In a failure-to-warn product liability suit against Boeing, alleging that plaintiff's late wife was made ill by exposure to asbestos from a Boeing aircraft, the District Court's grant of plaintiff's motion to remand the case back to state court after Boeing had removed to federal court, is reversed where the federal officer removal statute extends to contractors who possess a colorable federal defense, and that Boeing made a sufficient showing of such a defense at the time of removal.
