The following are digests and case links to
Circuit Court Admiralty Cases that have as an issue products liability:
v. Bombardier Co.
Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals
March 27, 2000
Products Liability: since no evidence
was presented that shed light on whether defendant should have foreseen
- either by a pattern of similar accidents or a design defect - the probability
and risk of the injury suffered by plaintiff, defendant did not have a
duty to warn under the Third Restatement of Products Liability § 2(c).
ALASKAN SEAFOOD, INC. v. RAYCHEM CO.
Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals
December 7, 1999
Products Liability: a refurbished vessel
was not the product for purposes of the East River products liability
rule; the manufacturer of component vessel parts was the manufacturer for
purposes of East River.
