U.S.A.:Court reinstates suit against Ford Motor

By Associated Press

CINCINNATI -- A federal appeals court on Monday reinstated a wrongful firing lawsuit by a former Ford Motor Co. labor relations official who accused the automaker of showing improper favoritism to union officials.

Stephen B. Himmel, former labor relations supervisor at Ford's Sharonville transmission plant in suburban Cincinnati, contended he was fired in October 1997 in retaliation for his complaints that Ford's agreement with a union violated federal labor law.

Himmel had contended the Dearborn-based company improperly agreed with the United Auto Workers that 10 percent of the company's nationwide hires would come from union referrals, and that Ford forced Himmel to hire an employee recommended by the UAW's national office.

U.S. District Judge Sandra Beckwith in November 2001 issued a pretrial ruling in favor of Ford. On Monday, the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reversed Beckwith and sent Himmel's claims back to her in Cincinnati for reconsideration.

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....
