Texas jury returns $33 million verdict against Goodyear

CARRIZO SPRINGS, Texas A jury in a Texas county court returned a $33 million verdict against Goodyear in a case involving an allegedly defective tire on a cement truck.

Goodyear, however, said in a statement that it reached a confidential agreement with the plaintiffs before the verdict.

The tire maker said it was "disappointed" with the verdict.

The tire involved in the case was a Goodyear G286A Super Single tire manufactured at Goodyear's Danville, Va., plant in May 2009, according to John Gsanger, attorney with the Houston-based Ammons Law Firm, who represented the family of the late Ramiro Munoz Jr.

Mr. Munoz, a teacher and community leader, was killed in June 2013 in an accident near Carrizo Springs when the tire on a cement truck allegedly lost its tread, causing the truck driver to lose control. The truck struck Mr. Munoz's vehicle.
