Ramon Tinoco Lopez v. Michelin North America Inc.

March 22, 2024 – Los Angeles County Superior Court, Los Angeles County, CA

James J. Yukevich, Thomas Borncamp, and Justin Marvisi successfully represented Michelin North America Inc. in a $99.7M product liability case. The 2nd District Court of Appeal determined that the plaintiffs did not show that, in the year that the tire was manufactured, there was a consensus about when it should be replaced. A Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge granted summary adjudication in 2022, concluding there was no duty to warn, and any failure to warn was not a substantial factor causing the accident.
