U.S. Chamber urges Connecticut Supreme Court to consider liability standard and punitive damages cap

October 02, 2014

In its brief, the U.S. Chamber urged the Connecticut Supreme Court to hold that the “unreasonably dangerous” definition of defect from section 402A of the Restatement (Second) of Torts applies to all Connecticut Product Liability Act (CPLA) claims, whether based on strict liability or negligence. The brief argues that the defendant’s position is shared by the vast majority of states that have considered the issue. Furthermore, only a single state has adopted the position advanced by Bifolck.

Daniel S. Rawner and Kenneth J. Parsigan of Latham & Watkins LLP served as co-counsel for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce on behalf of the U.S. Chamber Litigation Center.
