The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.
“Safer alternative design” is either an element a plaintiff must
prove to establish a claim in products liability or an affirmative
defense in nearly every state. The presentation will examine the various
ways this requirement appears in the law of different jurisdictions and
the methods available to strategically advance the defense. The panel
of trial lawyers and an expert witness will address the plaintiffs'
bar's increased reliance upon the reptile theory to gloss over this
element of proof and the steps defense counsel can take to thwart such
efforts. This presentation will discuss what constitutes a safer
alternative design and provide examples of effective attacks on proposed
alternative designs suggested in litigation.
