Toyota has moved to dismiss hundreds of lawsuits seeking damages associated with its recalls related to sudden unintended acceleration. Part of the multidistrict litigation against the automaker, the suits seek economic damages for consumers and businesses plus damages for individuals who were injured or died in accidents attributed to sudden acceleration. This week, Toyota moved to dismiss the master consolidated complaint, calling it "replete with hyperbole, misleading statistics, anecdotes, and legal conclusions."
