Amazon may be liable under products liability laws for defective products sold by third-party vendors, a federal appeals court has ruled. -
Numerous other courts, including two federal appeals courts, have held that Amazon cannot be held liable as a seller of products from third-party vendors. -
The ruling arrived via the 3rd U.S. City Court of Appeals in Philadelphia, running counter to a past lower court ruling that had come out in Amazon’s favor. -

As a regular Amazon customer I'm pretty happy about this. It should make returning 3rd party items much easier when they are defective.
