Amazon May Be Sued in Products Liability Cases Stemming From Third-Party Vendor Sales, 3rd Circ. Rules
Online retail giant Amazon, according to the US Court of Appeals for Third Circuit, may be liable under products liability laws for defective products sold by third-party vendors.
The lawsuit stemmed from an eye injury Heather Oberdorf sustained while walking her dog in early 2015. According to the allegations, she was using a leash she’d purchased a month earlier through Amazon.com from a company called The Furry Gang. When the leash malfunctioned it snapped backward and struck her in the face, allegedly leaving her with permanent loss of vision.
