Featured Amicus Brief

Plaintiffs allege that a complex prescription medical device —used for robotic prostate surgery —had "defective" warnings. During litigation in the State of Washington, plaintiff claimed that strict liability should have been charged. Both the trial court and the unanimous Court of Appeals rejected this argument. An appeal was filed where plaintiff's assertion of strict liability in a warning case involving a prescription medical product challenges decades of Washington precedent.  PLAC filed an amicus curiae brief on behalf of the defendant.
