FISHER v. ALLIS-CHALMERS CORP. PROD. LIAB. TRUST, F035149

Defendant failed to establish as a matter of law that it is protected by the rule of successor nonliability because it has not eliminated the application of the exceptions including, (1) the assumption of liability by agreement, (2) the "mere continuation" exception, and (3) the exception for "product line successors."
