Q: This pertains to product safety for Christmas lights.

These days with things being made overseas sometimes people claim they comply and they don't. Technically, if you want to see if they do ask UL as UL would have listed them.

You, therefore will be at a disadvantage. You MAY be able to find an attorney to represent you on a Flat fee basis, but not... Read more »

Q: What is the average discovery period for a product liability case filed in the NJ Fedral court?
Adam T. Funk
Adam T. Funk answered on May 2, 2014

It really depends on the federal court and the judge. Some judges allow the period to last up to 30 days prior to the trial. Others cut it shorter. Some judges allow you 6 months while others provide you with 18 months. It really depends on a number of factors.
