Andy Thompson Published in Georgia Bar Journal

SGR Partner Andy Thompson recently published an article entitled “The Sophisticated User Defense: It’s Not Just for Drug Companies Anymore” in the February 2012 Georgia Bar Journal.

The Georgia Bar Journal is a bi-monthly publication of the State Bar of Georgia and is distributed to more than 35,000 attorneys in the state of Georgia and throughout the United States.

Andy’s article discusses the application of the “sophisticated user” defense, also known as the “learned intermediary” doctrine, in toxic tort cases in Georgia—specifically, the defense is increasingly being utilized by manufacturers and suppliers of allegedly hazardous products in defending against failure to warn claims.
