John Cerreta wrote an article, "Design Defects at the Connecticut Supreme Court: A Doctrine in Flux," for The Connecticut Law Tribune. The article is about the significance of the Connecticut Supreme Court's decision in Izzarelli v. R.J. Reynolds Tobacco, 321 Conn. 172 (2016), which refined Connecticut's standards for design-defect product-liability claims. In addition, the article also examines how a new case looming on the court's docket — Bifolck v. Philip Morris — directly presents the question whether to adopt the Izzarelli concurrence's call to adopt the test of the Restatement (Third) of Torts in design-defect cases.
