About 3 years ago, a lawyer from Tulsa spoke at a local
STC meeting. He had been involved in a case against (I believe)
the Evenflo company. They had been sued because the instructions
on their child safety seats were not written clearly. As a result,
parents were not strapping the seats correctly, and a child was
killed or injured as a result. I believe the suit was successful.

I do not know if the writers were contract or full-time, and I don't
know if they were named in the suit, or just the company. However,
the issue was indeed the _instructions_.
