$60 MILLION FOR EXPLODING FUEL TANK

In his first trial, John helped secure $60 million for a family that was burned after their car exploded in a minor crash. During discovery, John uncovered a conspiracy at General Motors.

General Motors had been hiding documents that showed it would be cheaper to pay out verdicts than fix defects. In fact, an internal analysis showed that for General Motors, it was only worth $2.20 to prevent fuel-fed fires in its vehicles.
