Taft attorneys Pete French and Tristan Fretwell authored the article “An Unbalanced Approach to the Duty to Warn,” which was published in The Voice, a publication of the Defense Research Institute (DRI). The article discusses the U.S. Supreme Court decision to settle a split among federal and state court on how to apply the general tort law “duty to warn” when a manufacturer’s product requires later incorporation of a dangerous part.
