Ford's effective limitation on consequential damages means no federal jurisdiction for truck claim under $50,000
In Burtt v. Ford Motor Company, Senior Judge Kiser of the W.D. Va. granted the defendant's motion to dismiss, concluding that the plaintiff's claimed consequential damages were not recoverable and could not be counted towards the jurisdictional amount for a claim under the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act.
