Attorneys for some of the victims of the fatal ride malfunction at the Ohio State Fair in July say a state law may protect the ride's maker from liability. 

The 2005 tort reform measure shields manufacturers from wrongful-death claims more than ten years after a product is delivered.  The Fireball was built in 1998. One person was killed and seven others were injured.
