LITTLE ROCK, AR - A jury in federal court in Little Rock decided today Victoria's Secret should not have to pay for a woman's injuries when her nightgown caught fire.
The jury returned a verdict after a full day of deliberations. They said Victoria's Secret was not liable for Linda Rossby's accident in May 1998. Rossby alleged that the nightgown caught fire while she was taking a pizza out of the oven and claimed the lingerie company should have put a warning label on the nightgown.
Victoria's Secret spokesman Anthony Hebron in Columbus, Ohio, said the company was pleased with the decision and believed in the safety of the product.
