A recent Wall Street Journal editoral told of Blitz USA, the manufacturer for most Gasoline/Petrol cans in the USA, shutting down due to losing court cases due to product liability law. Users were pouring gasoline on fires and dying in the resulting inflammation. Plaintiff’s alleged failure to have sufficient warning and bad design.
The paper presented it as an example of tort hell, trial lawyers ruining a solid American company.
Does anyone know about this? I didn’t see much impartial analysis on this case at all.
Is this tort hell or justice to burn victims?
