A careful look at the application of the political question doctrine and government contractor defense by courts across the country reveals meaningful regional differences that can have significant impact on the viability of a claim against a government contractor in a military aviation case.

This presentation highlights the need to know the battlefield in choosing the best available forum for suit because the decision on where to file can determine whether the claim succeeds or fails.
