April 10, 2010: Toyota Litigation Consolidated
The U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation announced that nearly 200 lawsuits filed against Toyota will be consolidated before U.S. District Judge James Selna of the Southern District of California. The consolidation included personal injury suits with the class action suits, according to the order.The panel appeared to have been swayed by two arguments that Toyota's lead counsel maintained during a hearing last month in San Diego: Toyota's U.S. headquarters is in nearby Torrance, Calif., and more lawsuits have been filed against Toyota in that district than in any other.
