Legal coverage and the Eagle — and you

Order Reprints

At present, Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. and the Arizona Republic may not be on speaking terms. The newspaper recently wrote an unflattering story on the company involving lawsuits surrounding one of its tires.

Will the long arm of the law reach the independent commercial tire dealer channel? It could if you sold the G159. Read Modern Tire Dealer Editor Bob Ulrich's blog on the matter, "Decision against Goodyear may affect you, so be prepared," for more information.

But there is more to the blog than what was reported in the Arizona Republic article. When should newspapers run information about lawsuits?

Ulrich explains MTD's policy and why in the blog. Read it for yourself and let us know what you think -- either about the blog itself or the newspaper's coverage of Goodyear -- by leaving a comment.
