Unredacted Company Doe (Ergobaby) Opinion Released

We previously wrote about the recent 4th Circuit decision that ordered the unsealing of a district court opinion siding with a manufacturer who challenged a product safety report the Consumer Product Safety Commission "CPSC" planned to post on its Saferproducts.gov public database. The district court had previously redacted its opinion heavily and allowed the company challenging the CPSC’s posting of the report to sue the agency anonymously to protect its identity.

Shortly after the 4th Circuit’s opinion was published, the previously unknown “Company Doe” revealed itself to be baby carrier manufacturer Ergobaby. On June 20, 2014 the much anticipated 70+ page district court opinion was released in its unredacted form. You can read it by clicking here.

Stay tuned for analysis and takeaways from the unredacted opinion next week
