Ford Motor Co. won’t get a helpful jury instruction in a case where an insurer destroyed an injured man’s car after a rollover, the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida ruled Jan. 28.

A jury shouldn’t be told it can infer Ford has the stronger case just because Patrick Calhoune signed his 2006 Ford Mustang GT over to his insurance company, the court said. Neither he nor the insurer took steps to preserve the car after the accident.
