On Behalf of | Jan 28, 2020 | Auto Defects |

Pfaff, Gill & Ports, Ltd. recently contributed to an article in Bloomberg Law in regards to two Ford Motor, Co. cases with the intent of narrowing where the automaker can be sued. Ford contends that they should not be sued in a state where the car had not been sold. Ford is attempting to have SCOTUS take up the case.

“The idea that it would be unfair for Ford to have to defend a case in Minnesota,” where it made money by selling cars, is “absolutely contrary to the rules of procedure that have governed our country for decades,” plaintiffs’ attorney Bruce R. Pfaff told Bloomberg Law. Pfaff is with Pfaff, Gill & Ports Ltd. in Chicago.
