Picture of the productAccidental Death and Dismemberment: An Analysis and Review
Courts have struggled to determine whether deaths or serious injuries resulting from certain conduct actually constitute accidents, or whether they should be considered so inherently dangerous that the reasonably prudent person would understand the possible consequences of such conduct. DRI's Accidental Death and Dismemberment: Analysis and Review (2007 - 2013) provides a synopsis of cases nationwide from over the past seven years-and the reasoning behind their decisions-that deal with issues such as drunk driving, drug overdose (abuse), and violent altercations. The compendium also addresses when losses involving pre-existing sicknesses or other medical conditions as contributing factors are still "accidents, as well as how insurers can protect themselves from adverse judicial decisions through the use of exclusions. This material can serve as an introduction as you conduct your initial research into this fascinating area of the law.

Picture of the productProduct Liability: Warnings, Instructions, and Recalls
For decades, the pre-sale duty to warn and instruct has been and continues to be the basis of much consternation by manufacturers and product sellers and the bane of many defense lawyers trying to defend the myriad of cases alleging a failure to warn. Failing to comply with the post-sale duty to warn, on the other hand, has served as the basis of most punitive damage awards and has been recognized by experts in the area for its expansive nature in the realm of product liability law. The DRI Product Liability Compendium: Warnings, Instructions, and Recalls was assembled to give readers a comprehensive summary of the current U.S. common law, as well as international common, civil, and regulatory law, in both of these areas-pre-sale warnings and post-sale duties to warn or fix a defective product-and to demonstrate how the two areas are inextricably intertwined. Recognizing that product liability has become global and that accidents, court rulings, regulatory activities, and settlements anywhere in the world can be easily discovered, it is clear that manufacturers and product sellers must consider all geographical areas in which they sell their products when deciding how to comply with pre-sale and post-sale duties and how to defend claims and litigation based on these duties.

Picture of the productTrade Secrets and Non-Competes: A Compendium of State Law
DRI is pleased to announce an update to its compendium of state law in the dynamic areas of trade secrets and non-competition covenants. A project of the DRI Commercial Litigation Committee, this publication describes each state's law and procedure in these increasingly important subject areas. The chapter authors are lawyers who regularly practice in the two closely related areas. They advise employers in their states as they draft non-competes and seek protection for the secrets the employers have developed over the years. This publication is written for lawyers who work closely with employers to protect their clients' interests. This second edition addresses changes to the laws surrounding trade secrets and restrictive covenants that have occurred since the first edition was published in 2008. Since that time, a number of states have seen significant changes to their laws. Georgia, for example, enacted a constitutional amendment and statute addressing restrictive covenants; New Jersey adopted the Uniform Trade Secrets Act; and a number of states saw the issuance of significant case decisions that impacted their laws. This book is intended to provide an introductory discussion and reference tool for practitioners. It should be the place where lawyers go to begin their research.

Picture of the productTrade Secrets and Agreements Not To Compete: HC
A State-by-State Compendium

DRI is pleased to announce the publication of its compendium of state law in the dynamic areas of trade secrets and non-competition covenants. A project of the DRI Commercial Litigation Committee, this publication describes each state's law and procedure in these increasingly important subject areas.

The chapter authors are lawyers who regularly practice in the two closely related areas. They advise employers in their states as they draft non-competes and seek protection for the secrets the employers have developed over the years. This publication is written for lawyers who work closely with employers to protect their clients' interests.

The content of the book is based on the conflict between two fundamental business interests: the entrepreneurial right to engage in whatever business an American wishes to pursue free of unreasonable restraints, and the right of an employer to protect the business know-how it has shared with its employees.

In the 51 trade secrets chapters, the book examines the Uniform Trade Secrets Act and the extent of its adoption by most states. This includes the basic definitions of "trade secret" and "misappropriation," and the types of information that courts will or will not protect and allow an employer to hold confidential.

In the 51 non-compete chapters, the book focuses on the enforceability of prior agreements between an employer and an employee who then leaves the employer. Can the employer require that the former employee not engage in activities related to his or her previous work? What sorts of restraints on the former employee's new business can a court find "reasonable"?
