PASADENA, Calif. (Aug. 27)—A Pasadena attorney said his class action lawsuit against Bridgestone/Firestone Inc. and Bridgestone Corp. has solicited complaints about Firestone Steeltex tires "from all sections of the United States." Joseph A. Lisoni plans to forward all the complaints to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration within 90 days. Lisoni filed the class action Aug. 13 in California Superior Court, seeking the recall of 27.5 million tires. NHTSA ended an 18-month investigation of Steeltex tires in April 2001 without finding a defect trend.
