Ford Lawsuit

Ford Lawsuit

In 1919, Ford wanted to use extra profits to raise employee wages and employ more people. The Dodge Brothers sued Henry Ford in 1919 on the grounds that a company should act in the interests of its shareholders and not for the good of society, its customers or its employees and they won. This set the precedent for current US corporate law.
