Supreme Court says seat belt defect cases aren't preempted

Ruling 8-0, the justices held that the federal Motor Vehicle Safety Act does not block state law tort suits over defective seat belts. In an amicus brief, AAJ “argued that state tort remedies complement, rather than conflict with, federal safety regulation and urged the Court to rein in the overly expansive use of ‘obstacle’ preemption to deny tort victims their day in court,” said AAJ President Gibson Vance.
