Subrogation Against Amazon for Defective Products (Part 1 and 2)
More than ever in history, consumers are purchasing nearly every kind of product from Amazon and most of these products come from third-party sellers. When these products are defective, Amazon argues that it bears no liability because it is merely an intermediary for sellers and buyers. Initially, courts sided with Amazon, but the tide is turning as some recent decisions hold that Amazon can be liable for defective products from third parties.
Christopher Konzelmann and Michael Ciamaichelo explore how products are sold on Amazon, defense arguments raised by Amazon, cases decided in favor of Amazon, and the trending decisions against Amazon.
Christopher will also serve as a Track Leader for the Product Liability Track.
