In a personal injury action claiming that defendant manufactured a defective oil tank, judgment for plaintiff is affirmed where: 1) the district court appropriately declined to allow the jury to assign a percentage of fault to a nonparty to the suit; 2) the jury instruction did not foreclose the jury from considering the third party's conduct as an intervening event; and 3) defendant failed to show how it was prejudiced by the district court's exclusion of an expert report.
