PLL #6: Product Liability Law Newsletter

August 18, 2003 Advisory

Although product liability defendants often complain about unscrupulous plaintiffs' lawyers, they are usually content to say "good riddance" with a defense verdict or a small settlement. In a particularly egregious situation, Chrysler recently decided to go further. They sued three Texas lawyers from the Kugle law firm in San Antonio and filed grievances against them with the Texas bar for allegedly fabricating fraudulent claims and evidence tampering. This is not the first time Chrysler has taken such action. They previously sued lawyers in Philadelphia and St. Louis for allegedly bringing frivolous or fraudulent cases.
