JOHNS-MANVILLE SALES CORPORATION, ET AL., Defendants-Appellants.



EN BANC.

The United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit has certified this cause to this Court, asking that we decide the following questions of law:

Whether (1) mental anguish damages; (2) damages for cancer as a probable future consequence, and (3) punitive damages are available in asbestos products liability actions.

A majority of this Court after considering these issues will decline certification.

 Therefore, we respectfully decline to rule upon the questions presented.
