Ford Wins SUV Rollover Appeal

The Daily Business Review (via law.com) reports that the Florida Third District Court of Appeal has reversed a $60 million jury verdict against Ford involving a fatal rollover of an Explorer SUV:

Ford appealed the verdict in June 2006 on the grounds that Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Roberto Pineiro erred by allowing testimony alluding to hundreds of Ford Explorer accidents without requiring the plaintiffs to establish similarities between those accidents and the fatal one that caused the 1997 death of 17-year-old Lance Crossman Hall. 

The Boston Globe (via Bloomberg) reports that the plaintiffs plan to appeal to the Florida Supreme Court, and if that fails, go ahead and retry the case.
