Mortenson Taggart Wins Summary Judgment for Ford Motor Company

On May 14, 2020, a Mortenson Taggart team led by Craig Taggart and Michael Mortenson prevailed on summary judgment for Ford Motor Company in a lawsuit brought on behalf of Lilian Garza in the United States District Court for the Central District of California. 

District Judge Otis Wright II concluded that Ms. Garza’s claims against Ford were barred on judicial estoppel grounds because the claims were not disclosed in bankruptcy proceedings that were completed shortly before Ms. Garza filed suit against Ford.
