Abstract

This comment addresses the applicability of the doctrine of equitable estoppel to products liability statutes of repose. The comment specifically focuses upon the situation where the injury caused by the defective product occurs after the repose period has ended and it is alleged that the manufacturer concealed from the customer its knowledge of the defect. The author concludes that the principles of equitable estoppel should be applied to bar the manufacturer from asserting the statute of repose as a defense where the manufacturer intentionally withheld its knowledge of the unreasonably dangerous defects of its product from the consumer.
