CHICAGO (Feb. 13)—The U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals granted the petitions of Ford Motor Co. and Bridgestone/Firestone to hear their appeal of an Indianapolis district court judge's certification of a product liability class-action suit against both companies. Ford said it was "pleased" by the circuit court's decision and "optimistic that after the facts are presented the court will agree that a class-action suit is frivolous and unwarranted."
