Nearly two years ago, Orange resident Vera Perry filed a petition to perpetuate the testimony of Mayo Perry, who allegedly suffers from lung cancer, seeking his asbestos exposure history while employed by Chevron USA.

Court records show that on Aug. 17 a joint motion for dismissal with prejudice was filed in the case.

Through Provost Umphrey attorney Keith Hyde, the petition was filed March 12, 2013, in Jefferson County District Court.

According to the petition, Mayo was diagnosed with lung cancer, which “is expected to progress” and prove fatal.

The petition does not say when he was diagnosed.

Judge Donald Floyd, 172nd District Court, is assigned to the case.

Case No. E194-146
