Jury verdict of $123 million against Ford in SUV rollover

A California jury has awarded $123 million to a women paralyzed two years ago when the Ford Explorer she was driving rolled over. The jury returned the verdict against Ford, finding it liable for a design defect that caused the Ford Explorer to malfunction.

This is the first jury verdict that Ford has lost regarding the rollover issue. For more on SUV litigation, see my May 31, 2004 post.
