A similar liability story resulted when a Tulsa, OK
family sued (and won over) Evenflo for poor documentation accompanying
a child safety seat. The story was in my chapter's
newsletter and in STC's _Tieline_. The lawyer involved
spoke at a chapter meeting. I'll send you more information
if you are interested.
