    Plaintiff: Product Recall: HELP?

    What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? U.S. Virgin Islands

    Assume that you are suing the manufacturer. Discuss for which tort you would sue: negligence, strict liability, etc. If you state the law in your answer, be sure to cite your source of information.

    Would you would sue the manufacturer based on negligence or strict liability.
    What defenses might the manufacturer have? Why?

    Oh, come on. can't we do just a little?

    I would sue for wrongful death, since the recalled product killed my sister.

    If you state the law in your answer, be sure to cite your source of information.
    The all-seeing, all-knowing Internet.

    Would you would sue the manufacturer based on negligence or strict liability.
    I would sue for negligence since any competent manufacturer should have known not to include a 110V electrical supply for a shower mat.

    What defenses might the manufacturer have? Why?
    Their defense is that it wasn't a shower mat, but was really an heating pad for livestock. On the other hand, she was a rather large girl.

    If I were that way inclined I would so marry you

    I do have a pretty awesome recipe for authentic British fish and chips, but it involves beer and lard.

    Not sure how you feel about that
