Alabama Law Suit
A law suit against one of the world's largest ionization smoke alarm manufacturers was set to go to trial in Montgomery, Alabama in April 2014. Three children had died in a home fitted with working ionization smoke alarms. U.S. and Australian experts were scheduled to testify when the case was settled out of court with a Protection Order and Confidentiality Order.
Australian Litigation Strategy
The smoke alarm manufacturer settled after it was deposed by the court, i.e. they were forced to provide Australian Government (CSIRO) scientific test data showing the level of visible smoke their ionization alarms activated at under Australian Standards testing conducted by the CSIRO. This vindicated the 'Australian Litigation Strategy', i.e. requesting test data held by manufacturers and the CSIRO in the increasing number of law suits when ionization smoke alarms fail to sound a timely warning.
