LOS ANGELES (July 9)—Jury selection was to start July 9 in a rollover case involving Ford Motor Co. and Bridgestone/Firestone. California resident Gary Lynn Meek and his 13-year-old granddaughter, Amy Meek, were killed in Wyoming in August 2000 when the left rear Firestone tire on their Ford Explorer suffered a tread separation, causing the vehicle to overturn. The case—which may be the first involving both Ford and Firestone to be tried in its entirety—is before the Los Angeles Superior Court.
