Case Description: 

Firestone agreed to release important information to the public that it previously sought to be kept secret under a protective order in the Houston, Texas case of Peggy Turner Trahan v. Elvin Hayes Firestone, Firestone Motor Company and Bridgestone/Firestone Inc. The case involved injuries sustained in a Ford Explorer/Firestone ATX tire accident. Ford entered into a similar agreement in the same case, saying that it will also release a large quantity of documents without a protective order.
