In a report published by Bloomberg News on Friday, December 13, Toyota Motor Corporation agreed to conduct a series of conferences to settle claims stating its vehicles have caused injuries and deaths due to sudden, unintentional car acceleration.
U.S. District Judge James Selna announced the suspension of legal cases filed against Toyota following the car maker’s request for adequate time to try settling the lawsuits. Selna said Toyota will start holding settlement conferences in February, and added that participation in the settlement process is open to all complainants. A hearing has also been set for January 14 to address the process.
Sudden acceleration lawsuits started to pile up after Toyota began installing its units with an allegedly defective electronic throttle control system that allows electronic control on vehicle acceleration.
