Toyota legal battleground begins to take shape


This issue is just in its infancy. There will be many twists and turns in the road before it is finally resolved. The system works, slowly and gradually. It is very costly for any defendant to prove their innocence.

Yet that is the system we all live under in the US. Where would we be without the right of legal redress if we feel we have been wronged to bring legal action when other avenues fail?

Toyota will not be denied any of their rights because they are a forign corporation. Their council will have the same legal tools to defend them Toyota as if was a US domesticated corporation.
