On Friday a Coahoma County jury in Clarksdale returned a defense verdict in a Ford SUV rollover trial. This is the second defense verdict in less than a month for Ford’s Mississippi rollover defense team, which consists mostly of Alabama lawyers. Here was the first.
Ralph Chapman of Chapman, Lewis and Swan in Clarksdale represented the plaintiffs. Ford’s lawyers included Barry Ford of Baker Donelson in Jackson and Gordon Sproule and Patrick Strubel of the Huie, Fernambucq & Stewart firm in Birmingham.
