NAM President and CEO John Engler:
The United State Supreme Court came down with an important decision today to limit liability. It was a case where the National Association of Manufacturers had filed a brief and argued there shouldn’t be liability attached in these complex cases where companies in a third-party role aren’t directly at fault.
The court chose not to expand and create a new right of action, a new reason to have a lawsuit at a time when America’s drowning in lawsuits. So for companies what this means is the saving of millions of dollars in legal costs and the preservation of thousands of jobs at a time when our economy desperately needs that.
