Safelite’s ‘dollar bill rule’ faces federal lawsuit
Columbus-based Safelite is defending itself in federal court from a lawsuit challenging the company’s support for the so-called “dollar-bill rule” as a guide to determine whether to repair or replace cracked auto glass.
According to this widely used rule, a crack can safely be repaired if it is smaller than a dollar bill. The plaintiff, Colorado-based Ultra Bond Inc., makes resins used to repair cracked glass. It says the rule leads to expensive windshield replacements in many cases when repair is often a better option.
