Mesothelioma Victim Dies Just Before $11M Verdict Against Ford Motor. A Manhattan jury returned a verdict on May 30, 2014.against Ford Motor Co. and awarded $11 million to the family of an auto mechanic, finding that Ford acted with reckless disregard for his safety, and that Ford bore nearly half the blame for his death.
From Legal Newsline:
"ANNAPOLIS, Md. (Legal Newsline) — Maryland’s highest court on Thursday mostly upheld a trial court’s ruling in a lawsuit filed against Ford Motor Company over asbestos-laden dust from the company’s brake products. Plaintiff Joan Dixon contracted mesothelioma, and eventually died. "
"All of the jury’s awards were for non-economic damages, totaling $15 million, as follows: (1) to Bernard, as personal representative of his wife’s estate, $5 million; (2) to Bernard on his wrongful death claim, $4 million; and (3) to each of the four daughters on their wrongful death claims, $1.5 million."
Ford has most osha asbestos fines of any car maker and obviously has most asbestos wrongful death payouts too

! Yet another reason for Ford's slowing sales in the region is simply increased competition on two fronts. First, tensions escalated between Japan and China in 2012 over a territorial dispute, which sent Japanese automakers' sales in China plummeting for more than a year. Ford was a big beneficiary and stepped in to take market share from its Japanese competitors as Chinese consumers looked away from Japanese vehicles. Today, however, Japanese carmakers have made a comeback, with eased tensions between the two countries.
Just last month, Toyota Motors posted a 42% increase in sales compared to the prior year, and its sales through the first half of 2015 are up 10% to 512,800 units, compared to the same time period in 2014. The story is similar with Honda Motor Co., which posted a significant 30% sales increase in the first half of 2015 to more than 460,000 vehicles sold in China. That comeback puts the two Japanese automakers right on the heels of Ford and its 0.1% increase to more than 543,000 units sold in China through the first half of 2015.! --Per Motley Fool Investment Firm.

Near Tuscon on the I-10 east I saw a late model Mustang GT on fire with Fire trucks arriving as I and all the onlookers watched the heap of c@#p completely engulfed in flames while the white guy owner with a blonde mohawk hairdo was throwing rocks at his own fire engulfed mustang. I understand his frustration. What car owner wants their car to catch on fire while driving down the I-10 in 105 degree heat? It simply doesn't happen to Toyotas, Honda's, Nissans, Suburu's GM's, Dodges, Fiats or Smart Cars. Only Ford is a fire hazard.
Only Toyota has towed a 300,000 pound space shuttle. Ford has never done it and never will be able to do it.
China's stock market in free fall. Ford sinking fast for colluding with Chinese swines and buying junky Chinese door latches that dont work.
So true. The only hybrid that actually meets its advertised MPG specs is the Toyota Prius. The rest of the pack are FALSE ADVERTISERS advertising highly overexaggerated bogus MPG.

Notice that as Ford stock price continues plummeting questinator posts even more mindless hype and no matter how much Ford hype and bull doo doo that he posts Ford stock price wont spike upwards.
The UAW slacker (questinater) is desperate. He has seen his Ford portfolio fall from $18.50 down to below $15 so all he can do is post mindless RAH RAH GO FORD cheerleader posts and hope against hope that he can cheerlead Ford stock price to $25 per share. Unfortunately real investors are not ignoring poor Ford management performance. Ford management like this UAW slacker thinks investors are stupid and will ignore earnings performance and buy the mindless Ford mgmt HYPE and Bull doo doo.
