  • Description

    Product Liability Law, Second Edition, by prolific tort scholar Mark Geistfeld, represents the “next generation” of casebooks on products liability. Earlier texts focused on the relative merits of strict liability and negligence, embodied in the apparently competing liability frameworks of the consumer expectations test in the Restatement (Second) of Torts and the risk-utility test in the Restatement (Third) of Torts. The majority of courts, however, have incorporated the risk-utility test into the framework of consumer expectations. By providing balanced coverage of both consumer expectations and the risk-utility test, the casebook keeps pace with ongoing developments in the case law and moves beyond the battles that largely defined products liability in the twentieth century.
