Crocs Settles Design Defect Suits
I remember reading a while back about incidents where people were getting their feet caught in escalators while wearing "Crocs" shoes (or are those considered sandals? clogs? I am not sure). In any case, the TortsProf Blog is reporting today that the company (whcih has been described elsewhere as being "financially troubled") has been settling these cases pretty quickly. At least 11 cases were filed since early 2008 and five were settled in less than a year. For more on the story go here and here. Thanks to TortsProf Blog for the update and links.
