summary ======= U.S. District Judge James Selna (Santa Ana, CA) has set a court hearing date of February 19, 2013 to determine whether a Utah crash that killed Paul Van Alfen and Charlene Lloyd was due to a defective acceleration of a 2008 Toyota Camry. Van Alfen was killed on November 5, 2010, when his 2008 Toyota Camry accelerated and slammed into a wall oppoite an exit ramp off Interstate 80 near Wendover Utah. Lloyd, a passenger, died from her injuries the next day. Van Alfen's wife Shirlene and son Cameron were also injured in the crash. The lawsuit alleges that the 2008 Toyota Camery unexpectedly accelerated and did not stop even after Van Alfen applied the brakes.
The cases are: In re: Toyota Motor Corp Unintended Acceleration Marketing, Sales Practices and Products Liability Litigation, U.S. District Court, Central District of California, No. 10-ml-02151; and Van Alfen et al v. Toyota Motor Sales USA Inc et al in the same court, No. 11-04143.

fyi -
About the time when Toyota Motors was testifying in Congress with regards to unintended acceleration and mass media was giving Toyota Motors a hard time, prices for new and used Toyota cars dropped. The Toyota dealers were very motivated to sell and I was able to pickup a 2010 Prius III for really good price.
If this lawsuit is anything like the last circus event then the price of a new Toyota (Camry) should be lower than normal in the USA about the time frame of 2012 Feburary - April.
