[Modification of opinion (224 Cal.App.4th 1492; ___ Cal.Rptr.3d ___) upon denial of rehearing.]
1. On page 15 [224 Cal.App.4th 1503, in the unpublished portion of the opinion], the fourth sentence in the first full paragraph, beginning, "Further, as noted above," is amended by deleting all text following the word "point." The amended sentence reads:
Further, as noted above, the Ford employee whose deposition testimony was presented made this exact rhetorical point.
2. On page 16 [224 Cal.App.4th 1503, in the unpublished portion of the opinion], the first full sentence, beginning "While we agree," should be amended by deleting the words "did not object to the line of argument, and" from the middle of the sentence. The amended sentence reads:
While we agree the evidence did not support such an argument, Ford had the opportunity to respond to the argument in its own closing.
There is no change in the judgment.
The petition for rehearing of appellant and cross-respondent Ford Motor Company is denied.
