Charla Aldous discusses the Bostic case, involving a man who contracted mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. Charla tried the case twice and won jury verdicts in favor of her client both times.

Charla Aldous: Basically, to make a long story short, we had to retry the case, and the second time around, Harold Bostic pasted away during the trial right after he testified. The stress and the pain that man was under was as palpable as any I've ever seen. It was hard to continue with the second trial after Harold wasn't there - there was a vacant chair where he had been to try to be a voice for his son, but his spirit was there and when we tried that second case and finished it up. In my heart I was thinking, "Harold, we're not going to let you down. We're going to make sure that Timmy's death was not in vain, and that you understand that your voice was heard."

After we got the verdict, Harold's widow sent me the bandana that he had carried every day during the course of those two trials and sent me one of the little figures that Timmy Bostic had made when he was a little boy that his father had kept on his nightstand all those years. So Harold's spirit is still alive, as is Timmy's.
