    In military equipment design cases dealing with Government furnished specifications, a contractor that has been sued for products liability may raise what is called the "Government Contractor Defense". This defense is quite broad in application as per the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Boyle v. United Technologies (1988), it bars all product liability claims regardless of the theory of liability being raised. Is this defense sensible and fair in your judgment?
