Linder and Hansen Author IICLE® Chapter on Products Liability


Rex Linder and Mark Hansen authored a chapter entitled "Defenses to Products Liability" in the 2014 edition of the "Illinois Products Liability Practice" handbook published by the Illinois Institute for Continuing Legal Education (IICLE). As the authors point out, products liability claims may be advanced under various theories, such as strict liability, negligence, or breach of warranty. This IICLE chapter raises methods of defending the different theories of products liability and discusses damages issues, as well as special situations such as spoliation of evidence, federal preemption, and jurisdiction over foreign manufacturers.

Tyler Anderson (Peoria) also contributed to this chapter.

Founded in 1961, IICLE has published over 100 practice handbooks with periodic updates providing up-to-date instruction for Illinois attorneys.
