A ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit last month created a potential split between federal circuits regarding whether the online retail giant Amazon could be held liable for defective products sold by third parties. That split, however, may be short-lived, as the federal appeals court recently agreed to reconsider the case en banc.

On Aug. 23, the appeals court granted Amazon’s request to have an expanded panel take a fresh look at Oberdorf v. Amazon. As part of the decision to reconsider the case, the three-judge panel’s ruling from last month has been vacated pending further review.
