Products liability is a subset of tort law that permits a buyer, user or other person injured by a defective product to recover from the manufacturer, supplier, distributor or others that are involved making the products available to the public. We have handled numerous products liability lawsuits, which typically include allegations that a product was defectively manufactured or designed, or that the defendant failed to properly warn the plaintiff of the potential harm.
Mullins Whey, Inc. v. McShares, et al.
United States District Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, Green Bay Division (2004-2005). A product liability action in which a whey protein producer sought substantial damages against our client, among other defendants, related to our client’s development and sale of a bleaching agent for the whey protein. The producer alleged that our client’s bleaching product caused the whey to contain levels of a dangerous toxin. Following the filing of a motion for partial summary judgment to eliminate all of the tort claims against our client under the economic loss doctrine, our client successfully settled the case.
