Sandifer v. Hoyt Archery, Inc., 17-30124

Held that an archery equipment manufacturer was not liable under the Louisiana Products Liability Act for the death of a man who, while at home, was pierced in the head by a piece of a hunting bow he was examining or modifying. Affirmed summary judgment against his family's claims, concluding that the district court did not err by excluding most of the testimony of the family's primary expert witness.
