Just out of curiosity, would this raise any liability issues? I realize your
defense would be that you were following instructions, but would that stand up
in court?

Liability issues? Oh my, yes!

Not for me, 'cuz my contract shoves all the liability on them for stuff like that (I make sure I get questionable change requests in writing, and I keep copies in a safe place <smile>). But THEIR liability, as product manufacturers, would have been horrendous.

I forwarded a request to their Regulatory Affairs office and let THEM slap him down. You could hear the smack echoing through the halls for weeks afterward.
