Bloglines - $10M in Damages Awarded for Fatal Coleman Heater Malfunction
Bloglines user Lawboat (firstname.lastname@example.org) has sent this item to you, with the following personal message:
A federal jury in Miami has ordered the Kansas-based Coleman Co. to pay a Florida woman $10.1 million in damages in connection with a malfunctioning propane heater that allegedly filled a tent with carbon monoxide gas that killed the woman's husband and son while they were on a camping trip. A spokeswoman for Coleman, perhaps the most recognized name in camping equipment, said an appeal is planned.
