Regular readers of this blog will no doubt have noticed the paltry number of articles posted by me this year. While there have been a number of contributing factors, one of the more significant has been Toyota. I have been part of the team that has spent a large part of 2012 examining the engine control module hardware and firmware for Toyota cars and light trucks in light of reports on unintended acceleration. Yesterday, a tentative settlement was announced in the class action lawsuit. Other litigation concerning personal injury is still pending. As a result of the pending litigation, together with various protective orders (confidentiality agreements) I can’t comment or provide any details. For those of you that are interested, here are some key links.
Settlement announced: Approximately 5pm EST on December 26th 2012
Update: The federal judge has given provisional approval to the settlement.
Anyway, it is my hope that I will be able to blog considerably more frequently in 2013.
