Toyota has filed two motions since the guilty verdict against them. 1) To have the guilty verdict (by a jury) overturned by the judge; and 2) To have Koua Fong Lee (the driver who survived his horrible crash due to the defect in his ’96 Camry) pay $4 million of the $11 million Toyota has been court ordered to pay to all victims.
I can’t believe a company would ask one of the victims to pay part of their penalty for their design defect.
The hearing will be Wednesday, April 22, 2015 at 10:30 a.m. before The Honorable Judge Ann Montgomery, U.S. Federal Courthouse downtown Minneapolis. I will take notes once again and post an update.
