SUVs - Suddenly Upside-down Vehicles: Document Excerpt: Chewning Appeal Ruling

Rollover victims across the country are attempting to reopen closed cases or settlements where Bickerstaff lied. At least 12 cases are pending on whether state law allows the victims to even ask to have their cases and settlements reopened. Eight years after the Chewnings lost their case, the South Carolina Court of Appeals agreed that their fraud claim allowed them to seek to reopen their case. Ford has appealed and a decision from the South Carolina Supreme Court is expected soon.
