SUVs - Suddenly Upside-down Vehicles: Document Excerpt: Goff v. Ford Transcript

Brenda Goff’s ten-year-old son died in a Bronco II rollover accident in 1993. Goff sued Ford, and settled in 1995, in large part due to the false testimony of former Ford engineer David Bickerstaff. Four years later, after details of Bickerstaff’s arrangement with Ford was uncovered, Goff sued Ford again. When presented with the evidence in the spring of 2001, a federal judge in West Virginia concluded that Ford and Bickerstaff had engaged in a conspiracy to deliberately lie to Ms. Goff, her attorneys, and the court.
