Sarah Spencer presented at ALFA's 2019 Product Liability & Complex Torts Practice Group Seminar today. The Seminar is being held September 25-27 at the Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain in Marana, Arizona. Sarah will present on a recent Third Circuit case which created a circuit split and held that Amazon.com can be held liable under a strict liability theory as a "seller," even for products it never owned, controlled, or physically possessed, and which were sold on its marketplace by third-party independent vendors.
This ruling could have significant "slippery slope" implications for the definition of a seller in the internet age, and goes well beyond online marketplace operators like Amazon. Register to attend here.
