Issue: Retailer Liability
Court: Supreme Court of Michigan

RLC's Position:
The RLC filed an amicus brief explaining that the ruling below (which assigned a duty to non-manufacturing sellers to determine whether a product in open packaging or without packing requires on-product warnings and instructions regarding hazards known to the manufacturer) is contrary to Michigan law and places non-manufacturing sellers, such as retailers, in the role of the manufacturer for the purpose of determining what instructions and warnings are necessary to meet applicable safety standards.

Case Outcome:
The Michigan Supreme Court denied the application for leave to appeal.
