Default Lawyer’s documents add to Toyota’s trouble

Sounds like Toyota knew it all along.

Mr Biller, who worked for the company from 2004 to 2007, sued Toyota
last year, alleging that it illegally withheld evidence in death and
injury cases that were the results of cars rolling over. He accused
the carmaker of racketeering and wrongful termination and, in his
complaint, alleged that Toyota was engaged in a “ruthless conspiracy
and relentless effort to prevent evidence of its vehicles structural
shortcomings from becoming known”.

Mr Biller cited situations in his complaint where Toyota failed to
provide “electronically stored information” about vehicles that was
requested as part of other liability cases against the carmaker. He
said that his supervisor told him not to “preserve” that evidence and
reminded him that the “golden rule” was to “protect the client at all
cost” even if it meant breaking laws.
