A panel of federal judges in San Diego, California is expected to rule on whether to consolidate a large number of lawsuits filed nationwide against Toyota.
Toyota has been inundated with lawsuits due to safety concerns that have led to the recall of more than eight-and-a-half million vehicles worldwide. Federal judges in California will hear arguments on whether to consolidate more than one hundred lawsuits claiming Toyota is responsible for economic losses suffered by Toyota owners.
A panel of seven judges will deliver a ruling on the proposed consolidation in April.
Toyota’s attorney agreed with many of the 23 plaintiffs’ lawyers speaking at the hearing today that the lawsuits should be combined in a multidistrict litigation, or MDL.
The automaker and many of the plaintiffs lawyers asked the panel to send the cases to the federal court district that includes Los Angeles, near Toyota’s U.S. sales headquarters in Torrance, California. A judge overseeing the litigation would decide issues such as evidence-gathering and allowable legal arguments.
