A decision by the Georgia Court of Appeals has potentially far-reaching consequences for companies that include limitation-of-liability clauses in their customer contracts. In Monitronics International v. Veasley, the Georgia Court of Appeals upheld a $9 million jury verdict against an alarm company that had failed to properly warn a customer about repeated alarms at her home. A13A0090 (Ga. Ct. App, July 16, 2013).
