|Subject:||Exempting Innocent Sellers from Product Liability Lawsuits|
I plan to re-introduce Senate Bill 402 from last session which would exempt certain product sellers from product liability lawsuits.
Currently, there are instances in which a product seller other than the manufacturer can be sued if a product they sold is later found to be defective. The Innocent Sellers Act would exempt product sellers from liability if they have not manufactured or altered a product.
Co-sponsors of Senate Bill 402 were Senators Mensch, Hutchinson and Folmer.
Introduced as SB309
