LOUISVILLE, Ky.—The American Bar Association’s Section of Litigation Products Liability Committee has appointed Stites & Harbison attorney Whitney Frazier Watt as the executive editor of its Products Liability newsletter.

“This is an exciting opportunity for me to be at the cutting edge of this area of litigation and see and hear firsthand what is happening in the products liability bar around the county,” said Watt.
