A judge denied a request by Owens Corning on Thursday to bar some blacks from suing the former asbestos manufacturer, which had argued that blacks have less lung capacity than whites. Baltimore Circuit Judge Joseph H.H. Kaplan's ruling reversed a guideline he wrote in 1992 about who was eligible to sue for damage to their lungs. The plaintiffs, many of them former steelworkers and shipyard workers, are trying to prove they have diminished lung capacity because of their exposure to asbestos.

San Diego County sued 13 building manufacturers Friday whose asbestos-containing products were used anywhere from 15 to 30 years ago in the county courthouse and its adjoining jail, officials said. The lawsuit, authorized by the County Board of Supervisors and filed in the U.S. District Court in downtown San Diego, seeks to recover the expense of removing asbestos discovered in the county buildings in October, 1988.
