Lawsuit Says Toyota Deceives Consumers

The Orange County District Attorney has filed a lawsuit against Toyota Motors Inc., claiming the car company was aware of the potential for sudden acceleration in their vehicles and sold them anyway. The lawsuit is one of many brought against the automaker in the months following the massive recall of many Toyota models. The lawsuit accuses Toyota of engaging in deceptive business practices by withholding information from the public about sudden acceleration problems. The lawsuit is seeking $2,500 per violation under the Unfair Business Practices Act.  Staff Report, USA Today
