Ford loses appeal of $82.6 million Explorer rollover judgment - Los Angeles Times: "Ford loses appeal of $82.6 million Explorer rollover judgment
From Bloomberg News
November 2, 2006


Ford Motor Co. lost a bid Wednesday to overturn an $82.6-million judgment over an Explorer sport utility vehicle accident that left a woman paralyzed.

The California Supreme Court refused to review an appeals court's decision to uphold a jury's ruling that Ford was responsible for the woman's injuries. Ford plans to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.

A San Diego jury in June 2004 awarded Benetta Buell-Wilson and her husband $369 million, including $246 million in punitive damages. An appeals court reduced the judgment to $82.6 million in July. "
