A Florida appeals court handed Ford Motor Co. a victory Wednesday when it reversed a $60 million jury verdict against the nation's second-largest automaker involving a fatal rollover crash of an Explorer SUV. Ford appealed the verdict on the grounds that a judge erred by allowing testimony alluding to hundreds of Ford Explorer accidents without requiring the plaintiffs to establish similarities between those accidents and the fatal one that caused the death of 17-year-old Lance Crossman Hall.
