Feasel v. Tracker Marine LLC, 2021 UT 47 (Aug. 12, 2021)

In this products liability case, the supreme court modified the failure to warn factors first adopted in House v. Amour of America, Inc., 929 P.2d 340 (Utah 1996), clarifying that the adequacy of a warning turns on both its intensity and the level of specificity, both of which are determined by the magnitude of the risk. The court also adopted section 2(c) of section 333 of the Third Restatement of Torts, which governs a supplier’s duty to issue warnings for products supplied for use through intermediaries, and expanded the scope of the learned intermediary rule.
