The Orange County, California, District Attorney has announced plans to file a civil lawsuit against Toyota. The suit is over safety concerns with Toyota vehicles, and comes as Toyota has recalled over eight million vehicles worldwide due to several different safety issues. The suit aims to stop Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A. Inc. from “continuing to endanger the public through the sale of defective vehicles and deceptive business practices.”

Toyota has issued a statement saying that it, “has not received the complaint and is not in a position to comment on pending litigation.”

Orange county District Attorney Tony Rackauckas will hold a press conference later today to announce the lawsuit.

    The saying “Oh what a tangled web we weave, When first we practice to deceive” comes to mind. The half truths, concealed findings, and secrecy have been going on for so long now, what a massive failure at many levels.
