DALLAS — Kendall Law Group announced Feb. 11 that it has filed a class action
lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California on
behalf of shareholders who have suffered a loss in Toyota Motor Corp. American
The complaint alleges violations of the securities laws affecting stock
purchased between Aug. 4, 2009, and Feb. 2, 2010.
Shareholders who purchased American Depository Shares of Toyota during this
time period may move the court to serve as a plaintiff in this class action
April 9, 2010.
On Feb. 8, a class action complaint was filed alleging that Toyota, certain
affiliates and certain officers and directors misled investors when they failed
to disclose a major design defect in the acceleration system in several models
of their vehicles. Due to the allegedly false and misleading statements, Toyota
stock traded at artificially inflated prices during the relevant period.
Toyota announced on Jan. 21 that it would be recalling 2.3 million vehicles
in North America because of problems with the accelerator pedal sticking. After
the market closed on Feb. 2, Toyota reported a 16 percent drop in sales for
January 2010 because of the recall and suspension of sales of the most popular
models. Before the market opened on the Feb. 3, Toyota announced that there were
reports of brake problems in the 2010 Prius hybrid. In response to this news,
Toyota American Depository Shares dropped $4.69 per share, and Toyota common
stock fell 6 percent.
