Defended Video Game Manufacturer in Product Liability Case
We represented Nintendo in a product liability case that arose from a house fire. The plaintiff was charging a handheld Nintendo game system and left the house, which subsequently caught on fire. The plaintiff’s fire examiner alleged the cause of the fire was the Nintendo device, and the plaintiff filed suit for product liability. During depositions we disproved the theory that the fire was caused by the device, instead showing the fire originated three feet away. Following this, the plaintiff voluntarily dismissed the case with prejudice.
