Ford to appeal $1.7 billion Georgia truck crash verdict | News

WOODSTOCK, Ga. — Ford Motor Co. plans to appeal a $1.7 billion verdict against the automaker following a pickup truck crash that killed a Georgia couple, a company spokesman said Sunday.

A jury in Gwinnett County, northeast of Atlanta, returned a verdict late last week in a years-long civil case involving what plaintiffs’ attorneys called dangerous roof defects on Ford pickup trucks, attorney James Butler Jr. said Sunday.
