Horizontal Privity

Definition

Privity, i.e., a relationship between parties that share a legal interest in or right to some property or matter, between the original parties to a covenant or equitable servitude, as long as the parties share an interest in the land beyond that covenant or equitable servitude. In the product liability context, horizontal privity may also exist between a party in a distribution chain and the ultimate buyer or user of those goods.
