PEDERSEN V. MEIJER
Issue: Retailer Liability
Court: Supreme Court of Michigan
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.
The Michigan Supreme Court denied the application for leave to appeal.
