Toyota files motion to dismiss cases related to sudden acceleration
Toyota Motor Corp. recently filed a motion to dismiss hundreds of product liability lawsuits arguing that that the plaintiffs can not prove that there is actually a defect in the vehicles. Plaintiffs allege that documents from as early as 2003 show that Toyota was aware of problems with the electronic throttle, which could cause vehicles to accelerate out of control. A hearing will be held on the motion to dismiss on November 19. Go here and here for the full story.
