Frederick (“Rick”) N. Sager, Jr. of Network member firm Weinberg, Wheeler, Hudgins, Gunn & Dial (Atlanta) was recently admitted to the Product Liability Advisory Council ("PLAC"). He joins firm attorney Ben L. Weinberg, Jr. who is a member of PLAC. PLAC is an association of more than 100 major corporations. The Council was formed to submit briefs as friend of the court on pivotal issues of product liability and environmental law. The Product Liability Advisory Council is a nonprofit corporation whose membership is open to product sellers interested in the future development of product liability law. Membership is also extended by invitation to individual attorneys who maintain a substantial part of their practice in product liability or appellate matters. Through amicus briefs in selected appellate cases, PLAC provides a counterweight to the plaintiffs' bar by demonstrating to appellate courts the impact their decisions have on the business community. PLAC helps its member attorneys contribute to the development of product liability law, thereby enhancing their ability to serve clients.
