Ohio product liability veto undone

In a major setback for the Litigation Lobby in Ohio, the state's high court by a 5-2 vote has undone Gov. Ted Strickland's highly unusual attempt to recall and veto a bill that his predecessor, Gov. Robert Taft, had intended to become law without his signature. Justice Paul Pfeifer, who often speaks for the pro-trial-lawyer viewpoint on the court, filed what the Cleveland Plain Dealer's news columns called a "venomous and personal" dissent against his majority colleagues. More from Jonathan Adler @ Volokh and from NAM's Shop Floor. Our earlier coverage is here, here, and here.
