Products liability law is often confusing because it is in a state of constant flux as it confronts a number of challenges. Some such challenges are well known, such as the battle over the comparative merits of the Second and Third Restatements of Torts. Other, equally important challenges have, however, been overlooked by other texts, such as the growing use of bankruptcy protection laws to limit the consequences of supplying defective products (as in the recent bailout-supported cases of General Motors and Chrysler), and this book sets out to rectify such omissions.While other books leave the reader to sink or swim in a swamp of apparently contradictory doctrine, Products Liability Law: Cases, Commentary, and Conundra lays out from the beginning the five elements common to all products liability claims. It then builds on this foundation by tackling each new area of the law in a lucid and reader-friendly manner, while explaining how each doctrine relates to the politico-economic and historical context in which the law operates.Supplementing the text with numerous original flowcharts, tables, and other diagrams—as well as asking thoughtful questions along the way—this book charts a careful and comprehensible course through the often tempestuous battleground of products liability law.

This lean casebook is consciously designed to appeal to disenchanted users of the #1-selling Prosser casebook. Its content, organization, and cases-and-notes approach is explicitly modeled on Prosser, but the authors have capitalized on Prosser's weaknesses, focusing on providing key cases and concise, understandable notes. This book has the look and feel of Prosser, but will function much better for the many professors teaching a one-semester, four- or three-credit course. Features: Authorship--co-reporters of the Restatement (Third) of torts, and both known to be excellent teachers Conveys the core of Tort law through eminently teachable cases and informative topical notes Pedagogical notes challenge students to consider provocative questions about the cases Authors Dialogues feature informal, highly engaging discussions and debates between the authors that raise interesting and provocative points about the topic under consideration while modeling for students the skills of thinking aloud and persuasion Presents three- to five-line hypotheticals that test variations on fact patterns Fewer, more generously edited cases than Prosser New in the Third Edition: New co-author Bradley Wendel is a nationally known expert in the field of Professional Responsibility. He adds professional responsibility and legal ethic insights to the materials. Integrating this dimension to tort litigation issues will provide for exciting class discussion. A thorough integration of the newly completed Restatement (Third ) of Torts: Liability for Physical and Emotional Harm to all aspects of the material where the Restatement is of special relevance. Addition of cases adopting the Restatment view that foreseeability is not to be considered in making a duty determination. Many new hypotheticals taken from decided cases that raise novel issues of law. Professor Wendel will now be a third voice in the Authors' Dialogues. All chapters fully updated with new note material and new cases when necessary.
