Bridgestone Firestone, Inc. ATX, ATX II, and Wilderness Tires Product Liability Litigation

CASE NUMBER: Master File No. 00-ml-09374-SEB-JMS, MDL No. 1373
PRACTICE AREAS: Defective Products
CASE STATUS: Settled
COURT: United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana

The firm filed a complaint that was later consolidated into the master multidistrict litigation (MDL).  Claims in the MDL were focused on: (1) products liability claims against Bridgestone/Firestone for faulty tires; and (2) diminution in value (DIV) claims against Ford for the falling value of Ford Explorers.  Berger & Montague was one of three firms on the Discovery Committee.  After surviving in part the motion to dismiss, engaging in substantial discovery, and litigating the motion for class certification (de-certified on appeal in 2002), the case was settled on a non-class basis.
