In re Bridgestone/Firestone, Inc., Tires Prods. Liability Litigation – Case Brief Summary (Federal Court)

In In re Bridgestone/Firestone, Inc., Tires Prods. Liability Litigation, (F. Supp. 2d , 2002 WL 1120358 [SD Ind 2002]), the court upheld a disclaimer that "was set off from the rest of the document near the middle of the page" thereby rendering the "clause "conspicuous." (Id.)

More important, the agreement with the language centered in the middle of the page also had a space for the buyer to initial - - which he did - - thereby indicating the fact that he noticed the disclaimer. (Id.)
