Plaintiff, while working in the cargo area, fell from an aircraft maintenance dock which was designed for use on engines. The plaintiff alleged that the dock was unreasonably dangerous under the LPLA because the locking pins were the wrong size and because an adequate warning was not provided. The district court concluded that the plaintiff’s use of the dock was not reasonably anticipated and that the danger of using the dock in the manner in which he did was obvious to an ordinary user. In an unpublished per curiam, the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed. Ross v. Pourthau Indus., No. 05-30970, 2006 U.S. App. LEXIS 18901 (5th Cir. July 27, 2006).
