Kia Motors Corp. v. Lawrence Ruiz, et al.
from Dallas County and the Fifth District Court of Appeals, Dallas
Oral argument date pending
            The issues in this design-defect case involving an allegation that an airbag failed in a crash are (1) whether Kia, by showing it complied with federal standards, escapes liability under Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code section 82.008; (2) whether plaintiffs’ design-defect claim fails for lack of proof; and (3) whether warranty claims on electrical problems with airbags were improperly admitted because they were not reasonably similar to the alleged defect.
