This Article examines the development of tort law as it applies to the compensation of victims of asbestos exposure; surveys the current landscape regarding the novel products liability claims brought against manufacturers for hazards associated with replacement or associated parts, as well as discuss how courts have wrestled with this issue; and draws upon recent decisions from Washington and California to advocate a bright-line rule that limits liability to those third-party manufacturers in a harmful product’s chain of distribution.
