Toyota Unintended Acceleration Lawsuit
visitor Michael L. sent me a note about the settlement of the class
action lawsuit against Toyota for the claim that some of their cars
accelerated unintentionally when the drivers ostensibly hit the brake
pedal. It was an out-of-court deal to avoid a judge and jury debacle.
Keep in mind when you read the following excerpt from the FAQ
Class Members will receive a whopping
37 to 125 dollars
each for payment or have an electronic control module modification installed.
"How will the lawyers be
paid? Class Counsel will ask the Court for
Attorneys' Fees not to exceed
$200 million, plus up to an additional
$27 million in costs and expenses. These fees and
expenses will go to the multiple plaintiffs' firms and approximately
who worked on the litigation." Ah, what a bunch of Good Samaritans
those guys are.
