    Toyota near $1B settlement of CRIMINAL probe into unintended acceleration claims, report says

    I love that capitalized word - CRIMINAL.

    It should have been in BOLD, ALL CAPS and 3x the size in the actual article...

    • from that same article, here's some more excerpts:
      Civil claims

      Toyota is facing hundreds of lawsuits over acceleration issues, which gained public attention after the deaths of a California highway patrolman and his family that was reportedly caused by the unintended acceleration of his Lexus.

      That prompted the Japanese automaker to recall millions of vehicles starting in 2009. At the time, the recall and resulting lawsuits were a surprise for a company long associated with quality and reliability.

      Toyota has been hit with more than 200 proposed class action and 500 individual lawsuits alleging personal injuries or property damage caused by the alleged acceleration problems.

      The other point in the article was that the negotiations could simply fall apart because all the lawyers simply can't agree.

      Then it might cost more.

      Too bad
      So sad
