Plaintiff’s lawyers in Toyota class action file consolidated complaint

August 5, 2010 by

Lawyers for the plaintiffs in the multidistrict litigation (MDL) cases against Toyota consolidated before Judge Selna in the Central District of California have filed a consolidated complaint, joining all the claims for economic injuries into one action.  The consolidated complaint asserts that all class members suffered economic injuries because their vehicles declined in value following recalls tied to sudden acceleration problems.

The complaint asserts that Toyota violated California consumer fraud statutes.  The complaint does not assert that any product liability laws were violated, because courts have rejected those types of claims under product liability laws.   More than 200 lawsuits are pending in the MDL in Santa Ana, California.
