California courts provide a welcoming climate
for product liability litigation. Even the most thoughtfully
designed, carefully manufactured, and meticulously inspected
products become litigation targets. Some cases are nuisances
to be dispensed with as quickly and economically as possible,
but a major lawsuit can pose a daunting threat. Class action
and mass tort litigation can put companies out of business.
