RIVERSIDE, Calif. (Sept. 19)—Bridgestone/Firestone has filed a petition to move the class action lawsuit against Firestone Steeltex R4S, R4SII and A/T tires from California Superior Court to the federal district court in Riverside. Joseph Lisoni, the Pasadena, Calif. attorney leading the class action, said he welcomed the change. Lisoni said he now has "scores of reports" from consumers claiming their Steeltex tires were defective, and plans to present these documents to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, along with damaged Steeltex tires, at a press conference in Washington on Nov. 14.
