Lead Paint Decision in Wisconsin

The Wisconsin Supreme Court has found that a child lead based paint cannot sue the manufacturers for defectively designing a key ingredient.

The majority found that:

Lead is a characteristic ingredient of white lead carbonate pigment. By definition, white lead carbonate pigment contains lead. Removing lead from white lead carbonate pigment would transform it into a different product. Under these circumstances, we conclude that the design of white lead carbonate pigment is not defective.
