Chen v. L.A. Truck Centers, 265304

In a suit filed by Chinese nationals against a California tour bus distributor, seeking to recover in strict products liability for injuries and deaths suffered in a bus rollover accident occurring in Arizona, the trial court's application of Indiana law, which is substantially less favorable to plaintiffs than is California law, because the tour bus had been manufactured in Indiana, by an Indiana manufacturer who had previously settled out of the case, is reversed where the trial court erred in its application of Indiana law.
