A number of Torts and Products Liability casebooks use Hauter v. Zogarts, 534 P.2d 377 (Cal. 1975) for a variety of issues relating to misrepresentation and warranty, and for good reason. It's a great case involving something called the "Golfing Gizmo" produced by the wonderfully-named "House of Zog." Each year, I've tried to find a picture of the gizmo, and I've failed.
Until now. I think.
Check out this site, which appears to have the Canadian version of the same device, lacking, sadly, the "COMPLETELY SAFE BALL WILL NOT HIT PLAYER" inscription (which, incidentally, should be the name of House of Zog's first album).
