Garcia v. Ford Motor: "A Valentine's tale"



The Center for Individual Freedom has just published what it calls a special investigative report by Cary Cardwell on Garcia v. Ford Motor, the notorious Crystal City, Texas case in which a jury's award of $31 million against the automaker following a rollover emerged from a tangle of undisclosed personal connections and interests, including a juror's having been romantically involved with the plaintiff's attorney and having herself helped recruit clients to file the suit. Overlawyered gave the case considerable coverage in 2005: Mar. 7, Mar. 22, May 29, etc.
