tort law, strict liability, products liability, Ohio law
In June 1977 the Ohio Supreme Court decided Temple v. Wean United, Inc., and adopted the doctrine of strict liability for product liability litigation, thereby following a national trend. Earlier decisions had discussed a theory similar to strictly liability and had engendered considerable confusion as to the substantive theory supporting possibly recovery. Temple apparently ended the confusion.
