Codling v. Paglia
New York Court of Appeals
32 N.Y.2d 330, 298 N.E.2d 622, 345 N.Y.S.2d 461 (1973)
Christino Paglia (defendant) was driving a car manufactured by Chrysler Corporation (Chrysler) (defendant) when he collided with a car in which the Codlings (plaintiffs) were traveling. Paglia claimed that the collision was caused by a failure of the Chrysler’s power-steering system. In addition to suing Paglia, the Codlings sued Chrysler, alleging a violation of the car’s implied warranty of fitness. A jury found that the steering system was defective and that the defect had been a substantial factor in causing the accident. The appellate division affirmed the verdict, and Chrysler appealed.
