Appeal in Arizona Case Ruling that Comparative Fault Trumps Joint & Several Liability in Products Cases
The Arizona Supreme Court has agreed to review a court of appeals ruling that applied the state's comparative fault act to parties in a product's distribution chain thereby eliminating the imposition of joint and several liability on all parties in the chain. The 2006 ruling in State Farm Insurance v. Premire Manufactured Systems compared fault and then allocated damages between the seller of a defective kitchen water filter and the supplier of the filter.
