Arizona District Court Chief Justice Levies Hefty Sanction Against Goodyear Tire Company

According to Judge Silver (in her 66 page sanction order), Goodyear’s discovery strategy was to withhold obviously responsive documents, and allowed the Plaintiff and their experts to operate under erroneous facts.  As part of the sanction order Goodyear is now required to file a copy of this sanction order in ALL cases involving its G159 tire.  The Court granted Plaintiff leave to file their application for fees.
