Ford Motor Company Found Negligent

On Friday, September 18, the Nowata District Court found Ford Motor Company liable for damages sustained by Ford customers in the customers' dealings with the Ford dealership in Nowata. The Court ruled that Ford Motor Company failed to exercise ordinary care in appointing Edward Taylor and Thomas Plummer as a Ford dealer.

Todd Cone and W. E. Maddux, Nowata attorneys, represented the Plaintiffs. Although Ford's internal emails acknowledged, "We appointed a crook", Ford chose to fight with their own customers rather than help them after the Nowata Ford dealership defrauded the customers.

Cone and Maddux were satisfied with the results. "Now these Ford customers can put this behind them and get on with their lives."
