PLL #9: Product Liability Law Newsletter

September 5, 2003 Advisory

I didn't think I'd be writing again so soon but just after I sent off Update #8 I learned that yesterday New York federal judge Robert Sweet (great name for a judge deciding an obesity case!) again dismissed the overweight teenagers' case against McDonald's. Just two weeks ago I reported (in Update #7) that despite a January dismissal "the plaintiffs filed an amended complaint and the case is still very much alive." I guess I'll have to eat those words!
