Calif. Superior Court rules bulletproof vest manufacturer liable for death of officer
Copyright 2006 Dolan Media Newswires
A California jury ordered a bulletproof vest manufacturer to pay the family of a slain police officer $3.6 million for failing to warn law enforcement officials of the product's failings.
The plaintiffs contended that the vests degrade quickly when exposed to light, heat and humidity - and that Second Chance Body Armor knew this and failed to warn its customers.
