With trial scheduled to begin on September 16, 2013, the parties to a lawsuit alleging that a defectively designed infant carrier caused the death of a 7-1/2-week old baby boy have reportedly settled the claims for $8 million. Medley v. Infantino, LLC, No. 2010-00103 (Philadelphia C.P. Ct., Pa., settled September 4, 2013). The plaintiff had alleged that "the unsafe design of the Infantino SlingRider created a potentially lethal impairment of an infant’s ability to breathe" and that the company, after recalling the product in 2010, admitted that it posed a "risk of suffocation" when used with infants younger than four months. The product had reportedly been associated with three other deaths. The mother in this case had purchased the carriers in 2008 to use with her newborn twins.
