16:28 EDTTMHagens Berman: Toyota agrees to fund a settlement of cases worth up to $1.4B
The attorneys representing Toyota (TM) owners who claim that their vehicles are prone to sudden, unexplained acceleration announced that Toyota has agreed to a settlement valued between $1.2B and $1.4B, which includes direct payments to consumers as well as the installation of a brake-override system in an estimated 3.25M vehicles. Under the terms of the proposed settlement, Toyota will install a brake-override system in vehicles subject to floor mat entrapment recalls. In addition, the settlement establishes a fund of $250M to be paid to former Toyota owners who sold their cars during the period from Sept. 1, 2009, through Dec. 31, 2010, to compensate those owners for an alleged reduced value as a result of publicity concerning unintended acceleration. A separate fund of $250M will be established to compensate current owners whose vehicles are not eligible for a brake-override system. The settlement also provides that all 16M current owners will be eligible for a customer care plan that will warranty certain parts that plaintiffs allege are tied to unintended acceleration for between three and 10 years. The agreement also provides $30M in education grants to independent academic institutions to further the study of auto safety and to enhance driver education. Judge James Selna is expected to review the proposed settlement on Dec. 28, 2012, and if he agrees with its fairness, will grant preliminary approval.
