Court Decision Welcomed By Ford And Firestone
In the US, a federal judge turned down lawyers’ requests to order a recall of Ford Explorers and Firestone tyres. The judge ruled that only the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has the authority to order such a recall. Bridgestone/Firestone has already indicated that it would fight any such order from the NHTSA in the courts.
In a rare moment of unanimity, both Ford and BF Inc. welcomed the judge’s decision..
