Toyota allowed to appeal ruling

Federal judge says Toyota may appeal 9th Circuit decision

A federal judge yesterday said Toyota Motor Co. may appeal a 9th Circuit decision that would have allowed Toyota owners who were not affected by unintended acceleration problems to join a class action suit. Those individuals are seeking economic damages.

If Toyota appeals, which it is expected to do, the 9th Circuit will have to decide if it will hear the case. Plaintiffs attorney Marc Seltzer said if the circuit court does agree to hear the case, he’s confident it will affirm the decision.
