A settlement has been reached in Mohr v. Daimler Chrysler Corp., a products liability case which alleged defects in a 2000 Dodge Caravan.
The Court of Appeals affirmed almost $5,000,000 in compensatory damage awards for the death of the driver and front-seat passenger in the case. The court also affirmed a finding of no liability for injuries suffered by two passengers. The court reduced the punitive damage award from almost $49,000,000 to $13,800,000. A Rule 11 Application was pending before the Tennessee Supreme Court.
With interest, the judgment was over $26,000,000.
