Toyota now faces more than 320 lawsuits in federal and state court related to its sudden acceleration problems. Toyota is in deep problem. Already, the world largest constructor has paid $16.4 million to NHTSA, which linked 52 deaths to acceleration problems.
In a report filed Friday with U.S. District Judge James Selna, attorneys for the plaintiffs and Toyota listed 228 federal cases and 99 related cases in state courts. A judicial panel consolidated the federal cases before Selna last month.
Selna’s court is in Orange County, California, near Los Angeles and close to Toyota’s U.S. headquarters. The next court date in the case is scheduled for May 13.
