Orange resident Vera Perry has filed a petition to perpetuate the testimony of Mayo Perry, who allegedly suffers from lung cancer.
Through Provost Umphrey attorney Keith Hyde, the petition was filed March 12 in Jefferson County District Court. The anticipated defendant in the pending suit is Chevron USA.
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.
The petition seeks Mayo’s testimony concerning his employment and asbestos exposure.
The petition asks the court to authorize Mayo’s deposition.
Judge Donald Floyd, 172nd District Court, is assigned to the case.
