An attorney representing a Utah man who contracted lead poisoning while working at an ammunition plant is preparing to file a petition for rehearing after the state Supreme Court remanded the case to the lower court to answer if the intentional-injury exception can apply to occupational disease claims.

Layne Kay filed a lawsuit against his employer, Barnes Bullets, arguing that the bullet manufacturer intentionally poisoned him by making him melt a large amount of lead without a respirator, court records show.
