When John Neves, a Woodburn, Oregon resident, began to cough up blood bi-weekly, his doctors explained to him that he had been exposed to asbestos. As an employee of Oregon Youth Authority, which works to house juvenile delinquents, Neves suspected that the cabins in which he housed the children contained asbestos and were thus the cause of for the exposure, and that the management had knowledge of the potential for asbestos exposure yet did nothing to warn him.
When Neves confronted the management at Oregon Youth Authority, he was put on administrative leave and ultimately fired after threatening to bring the situation to light. Jason Kafoury, of Kafoury and McDougal in Portland, Oregon, is currently representing Mr. Neves in a lawsuit against Oregon Youth Authority.
