CPM Selected as Co-Lead Counsel for Toyota Class Action

chosen from 70 prospectives for the economic loss committee in the multidistrict lawsuit

United States District Judge James V. Selna appointed Frank M. Pitre of Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy as Co-Lead Counsel for the economic loss committee in the Toyota lawsuits. Nearly 70 plaintiffs' attorneys argued for a leadership role in the MDL. The MDL involves more than 200 lawsuits divided into two groups: those seeking losses on behalf of consumers and others who have lost value on their Toyotas, and those seeking damages for people who have been injured or killed in a Toyota. Frank Pitre, along with Steve Berman and Marc Seltzer were selected as Co-Lead Counsel for those cases seeking economic losses. Toyota, the world's largest automaker, faces at least 228 federal lawsuits and 99 state lawsuits. The Toyota City, Japan-based company has recalled more than 8 million vehicles for fixes related to sudden unintended acceleration. The automaker announced in September that it was recalling 3.8 million Toyota and Lexus vehicles because of a defect that may cause floor mats to jam accelerator pedals. The company later recalled vehicles over defects involving pedals themselves.
