If you’re looking for articles pertaining to product liability litigation, the Rand Institute for Civil Justice (“ICJ”) has a Web site that lists and summarizes a variety of articles that are available for purchase or for free. Go to www.rand.org/icj/pubs and click on “Product Liability.”

It also suggested reforms that could limit such effects without endangering consumer safety. This work helped focus the national debate about product liability on systematic evidence, rather than on anecdotes and assertions.
