The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Defective products, I guess

Oklahoma State Trooper Nikky Joe Green was murdered two years ago by meth-head Ricky Ray Malone; a mobile meth lab was found in Malone's car.

Green's widow has now filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against Malone — and against the manufacturers and sellers of the cold-remedy tablets Malone used in his traveling lab. Linda Green charges that the stores knew the tabs were being used to produce meth, and that the drug companies know ways to keep pseudoephedrine from being extracted to produce meth, but deliberately don't use them.

It was Nik Green's death that prompted the state, in the spring of 2004, to enact stricter controls on the drugs in question; Malone is presently parked on Death Row at Big Mac.

Still, I'm wondering if it's possible to sue concrete companies if a Mob informant is found in the river wearing cement overshoes.
