Litigating the Design Defect Case – Pretrial Strategy
Litigation attorneys Rachel Agius and Stosh Silivos co-authored materials for the Aviation and Space Law Conference hosted by the American Bar Association's Tort Trial and Insurance Practice Section. Their paper looks at pre-trial strategies in design defect-related litigation, covering topics such as jurisdiction and statute of limitations. They explain how to navigate personal jurisdiction in light of the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Ford Motor Co. v. Montana Eighth Jud. Dist. Ct., compare options for pre-trial motions, outline state and federal statutes of repose and analyze statute of limitations provisions in the Uniform Commercial Code.
