Jury recommends $14 million in Ford rollover case

January 12th, 2011 in News

SAN DIEGO (AP) - A jury has recommended that a San Diego Ford dealership pay more than $14 million to the family of a couple killed in a 2006 rollover crash.

The verdict was reached Tuesday against Mossy Ford. Three sons of Casey and Melanie Barber filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the dealership.

The couple were killed in July 2006 when their Ford E350 Sportsmobile rolled over near Page, Ariz., after a right-rear tire tread separation led to the crash.

Plaintiffs' attorney Adam Shea told jurors the auto dealer performed a faulty tire repair on the van in August 2005 and it failed to take the tire out of service.
