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.
