Summary of Pennsylvania Decisions

Linster v. Allied Signal, Inc., 2011 PA Super 86 (April 21, 2011)

Holding: A trial court may not grant summary judgment when the facts and circumstances are sufficient to establish the required product identification and causal connection between the plaintiff's disease and the defendant's product(s). Issues relating to the apportionment of liability are separate from those related to causation and do not affect the sufficiency of a plaintiff's proof as to the defendant's product(s).
