The AP (1/18, Dalton) reports, "Toyota Motor Corp. has settled what was to be the first in a group of hundreds of pending wrongful death and injury lawsuits involving sudden, unintended acceleration by Toyota vehicles, a company spokesman said Thursday." The AP adds that Toyota "reached the agreement in the case brought by the family of Paul Van Alfen and Charlene Jones Lloyd, spokeswoman Celeste Migliore said. They were killed when their Toyota Camry slammed into a wall in Utah in 2010." Financial details of the agreement were not disclosed.
The National Law Journal (1/18, Jones) also covers this story.
