Lawyer Back With Another Firestone Recall Effort
(Akron/Tire Review) After more than a year of silence, Pasadena attorney Joe Lisoni has begun attacking Bridgestone/Firestone North American Tire (BFNAT), filing his fifth petition with NHTSA calling for the recall of some 30 million Firestone Steeltex tyres. Lisoni’s latest petition, according to reports, cites five traffic accident deaths in 2005 that he claims were caused by the tyres.
Lisoni’s previous state and federal court efforts to force a recall of Firestone Steeltex lines have all failed. Lisoni began his quest against the tyremaker back in August 2002.
