A Gratifying Defense Verdict in Warranty Case - Owen v. Ford
An Orange County Superior Court jury returned a 9-3 verdict for Ford, involving a 2000 Mustang case and an engine spark knock which was allegedly presented to the dealership and not repaired after four repair attempts. The jury rejected plaintiff expert's opinion that spark knock causes "permanent" damage to the engine cylinders which might result in a catastrophic engine failure at any moment.
