The widow of MERLIN OLSEN has amended a lawsuit the couple filed while the Little House On The Prairie star was still alive, holding studio bosses responsible for the actor developing a rare form of cancer.
Former American football star Olsen died earlier this month (Mar10) after losing his battle with mesothelioma at the age of 69.
Prior to his death, he and his wife Susan had filed suit against 38 defendants, alleging they had exposed the actor to asbestos, which reportedly led to the development of his cancer.
Susan Olsen has now resubmitted the legal papers to include executives at NBC Studios and 20th Century Fox Film Corp., as well as paint manufacturers Sherwin-Williams, reports TMZ.com.
She claims Olsen was exposed to the deadly asbestos while he worked on TV and movie sets and she is seeking unspecified damages.
