On October 15, 2013, an Arizona jury entered a defense verdict in Boyle v. Ford, a case involving a car fire that spread to other personal property. Plaintiffs alleged the speed control deactivation switch ("SCDS") caused the fire. After 5 1/2 hours of deliberation, the jury agreed the 2002 Ford F-150 was not defective. The plaintiffs sought property damages, as well as damages for pain and suffering.
John Gersch of Thompson Coe Cousins & Irons and Iman Soliman of Bowman and Brooke LLP represented the defendant.
