Explorer Exhaust Leak Lawsuit Dismissed by Judge in Illinois

A lawsuit concerning Ford Explorer exhaust leaks has been dropped in Illinois.

A Ford Explorer exhaust leak lawsuit is over as a federal judge granted the wishes of Ford to dismiss the proposed class-action lawsuit.

The lawsuit never made it to the class-action stage as the plaintiff couldn’t prove his case. The judge ruled the plaintiff didn’t provide enough details to prove the Ford Explorer has defects that allow exhaust fumes and carbon monoxide to enter the cabin.

This is a setback, but not a death blow for Explorer owners wanting nationwide action for carbon monoxide poisoning. The plaintiff in this case was given a chance to amend his complaint, but failed to do so.
