PADC Members Co-Author Products Liability Jury Instructions and Article

The Pennsylvania Defense Institute’s attached April edition of Counterpoint contains the most recent version of the proposed Product Liability Suggested Standard Jury Instructions, which have been sent to all Commonwealth of Pennsylvania judges. Counterpoint also contains a related article entitled “Pennsylvania Supreme Court Overrules Azzarello, Only to Have PBI Suggested Jury Instructions Continue To Seek Azzarello’s Reinstatement (Volume 3 – Updates and Addenda to Proper Suggested Standard Jury Instructions)”. Representatives of PDI and PADC worked closely together on these. PADC members Jim Beck, Bill Ricci, Scott Toomey and Dennis Zienba co-authored them. We ask that you distribute a copy of the instructions to all persons in your firms who handle Product Liability cases for their review and use. Thank you gentlemen for your hard work on these.
