Overview

Written by the two reporters for the Restatement (Third) of Torts: Product Liability, the new edition of this intellectually challenging text introduces students to the black letter of the law and its underlying policies, while applying the law to real-life situations. Unlike other casebooks, the Restatement rules and comments are fully integrated into the text - thus eliminating the need for supplementary material to bring the Restatement into class discussion. The authors continue their unique approach to the material with:

  • an updated blend of theory and litigation complimented by cases and problems that reflect the current status and the future trends of products liability
  • an accessible, three-part structure praised by the book's users for its careful attention to the relationship between each of the parts
  • a student-friendly mix of problems, cases, excerpts, notes, and questions New material for the Fourth Edition includes:
  • a host of new cases including: Myriak v. Port Authority of New York; Khumo Tire, Ltd v. Carmichael; Liriano v. Hobart Corporation; Perez v. Wyeth Laboratory Inc.; and Scarangella v. Thomas Built Buses Inc.
  • additional coverage of Component Parts and how a number of courts have adopted Section 5 of the Restatement which limits the scope of liability for manufacturers of component parts
  • a trilogy of cases dealing with the issue of reasonable alternative design v. consumer expectations, including Potter v. Chicago Pneumatic Tool Co.
  • a more concise and streamlined Part III - Institutional Perspectives
  • additional hypotheticals
