Issues: Appellant's Statement of the Issues:
Whether the trial court erred in dismissing Ziegelmann's complaint on the grounds that it failed to state a cause of action upon which relief could be granted.

Appellee's Statement of the Issues:
1. Whether the District Court properly dismissed the Complaint for failing to allege any legally cognizable injury, which is an essential element of the claims and a prerequisite for standing.
2. Whether the claims, which allege only economic harm to the product itself, are barred by the economic loss doctrine.
3. Whether the District Court properly dismissed the fraudulent concealment claim for failing to allege essential elements.
