Supreme CourtFord Motor Co. will argue for summary judgment in a Madison County, IL, case brought by an F-150 owner who says his pick-up’s cruise control malfunctioned, causing him to accelerate and crash into a tree.  Plaintiff Brian Williams filed suit in 2007, seeking damages in excess of $50,000 and costs.
