Ford executives sought for court
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- The Missouri Supreme Court is considering whether to force the testimony of top Ford Motor Co. officials in a lawsuit stemming from the rollover of a Ford Bronco.
Judges had pointed questions Tuesday for a Ford attorney, who is seeking to block the depositions, and a victims' attorney who claims Ford has not taken the same response it did after accidents involving Firestone tires and the Ford Explorer.
The case focuses on a June 1997 accident involving Continental General tires and a Bronco II on Interstate 35 near Marietta, Okla. The lawsuit was filed in Missouri because the passengers were from the Kansas City area.
A trial court judge granted victims' attorneys the right to depose Jacques Nasser, former president and chief executive officer of Ford, as well as several other top officials.
