April, 2011: Toyota wins NY case over unintended acceleration
A federal jury in New York has found that Toyota Motor Corp. isn't responsible for a 2005 crash that the driver said was caused by a floor mat.
The jury decided Friday that the automaker is not liable for the Scion's (SY'-ahns) floor mat or for the absence of a brake override system.
The judge ruled out evidence on the electronics earlier this week.
In a written statement, Toyota called the verdict an "early indicator of the strength of the legal theories behind unintended acceleration claims" against it.
