Vincent Bifolck, Executor (Estate of Jeanette D. Bifolck), et al. v. Philip Morris, Inc.

2017-01-07 caselaw.findlaw
This case is the second of two diversity actions in which the federal courts certified questions for this court's advice regarding the viability of an action under Connecticut's Product Liability Act (act)1 alleging that a cigarette's design had increased consumers' risk of cancer. The courts sought advice whether specific theories advanced in those actions are precluded by this court's adoption of §  402A of the Restatement (Second) of Torts, which imposes liability for defective products that are “unreasonably dangerous,” and more particularly, our adoption of comment (i) to § 402A, which defines that term in relation to consumers' knowledge of the danger.
