Toyota Lawsuits Advance to Next Stage

A federal judge in Santa Ana, California recently announced a significant development in what promises to be one of the most wide-ranging defective products cases ever undertaken. In recent months, nearly 350 personal injury claims have been filed against Japanese automaker Toyota, many of which claim that the company’s cars were based on faulty designs and defective parts that led to collisions, malfunctions, and other problems.

In the most recent announcement, the judge overseeing the case has said that he plans to form several committees to oversee the various cases against Toyota. Specifically, the judge has said that he will likely divide the cases according to category, such as economic loss, injuries, and other claims. This approach is relatively common in large class action suits.
