MEMORANDUM

Posted: March 6, 2019 12:37 PM
From: Senator Lisa Baker
To: All Senate members
Subject: Exempting Innocent Sellers from Product Liability Lawsuits
 
I plan to re-introduce Senate Bill 309 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 309 were Senators Folmer, Hutchinson, Mensch and K. Ward.

Thank you.



Introduced as SB516
