Dan Becnel Jr. is the first plaintiffs attorney to apply for the coveted lead counsel status in the multidistrict litigation against Toyota. He is applying to be co-lead counsel or a member of the MDL's economic loss lead counsel committee, which would be in charge of most of the class actions filed on behalf of consumers seeking damages for their vehicles' reduced value. Attorneys have until Friday to apply for a seat on that committee or two other potential committees handling core discovery issues or the personal injury cases.
