The Illinois Appellate Court, Second District, in a case of first impression held a "take home" cause of action does not exist under Illinois law. A "take home" claim is brought by a family member (usually the spouse) of a person who allegedly worked with asbestos where the family member claims exposure at home from the asbestos allegedly brought there on the clothing of the worker. The Nelson Court declined to recognize a duty to take home plaintiffs because no legally recognized relationship existed between the person exposed at home and the premises owner.
