Taylor v. Airco, Inc., No. 07-2422

By FindLaw Staff on August 03, 2009 6:11 PM

In a wrongful death action, district court judgment is affirmed where: 1) plaintiff's employer was a sophisticated user of defendants' products, and defendants owed plaintiff no duty to warn about the dangers of their products; 2) plaintiff's fraud claim fails as the record contains no evidence from which a reasonable jury could conclude that defendants' were responsible for the allegedly false or misleading representations in a safety data sheet; and 3) plaintiff's civil conspiracy claim failed as a reasonable jury could not conclude that conspiring defendants substantially assisted plaintiff's employer in defrauding him.
