Rogers v. Bell Helicopter Textron, Inc., C061943

In plaintiff's suit against a manufacturer of the helicopter she was piloting at the time of her crash, a grant of defendant's motion in limine to exclude evidence that the maintenance manual was defective and caused the accident, and its subsequent grant of defendant's motion for a nonsuit are reversed as the maintenance manual here was not a part of the helicopter for purposes of the General Aviation Revitalization Act of 1994.
