Update: municipal Crown Victoria suits



Class action lawyers were suing Ford Motor claiming to represent Illinois municipalities that regretted buying the popular police model. Then Ford announced that it would decline to sell the car to towns that were suing over it. Now, according to the Illinois Civil Justice League, close to 1,000 municipalities have elected to opt out of the action -- one sign among several that it was ill-conceived from the start. More here, here and here (cross-posted on Overlawyered).
