Toyota Statement on the Dismissal of New York and Florida Plaintiffs from the MDL
May 04, 2012
Toyota released the following statement on Judge Selna’s final ruling dismissing certain named economic loss plaintiffs from New York and Florida from the MDL.
“We are pleased the Court agrees that plaintiffs from New York and Florida who continue to operate their vehicles and do not allege to have experienced unintended acceleration or, in New York, actually sold their vehicles at a loss have no legally recognizable claims against Toyota. Significantly, given Judge Selna’s recognition that manifestation is the ‘majority rule’ of the courts, we believe this ruling also has important implications on the dismissal of other ‘no injury’ claims beyond these two states.”
