LOS ANGELES — Toyota Motor Corp. is using a new NASA study finding no fault with its electronics as evidence a sudden-acceleration class-action suit against it should be dismissed.
In a filing in federal court in Santa Ana, Calif., this week, the automaker argued that the study, conducted at the request of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and released Feb. 8, was proof that its vehicles have no defects and that therefore the class-action suit is without merit.
This is the second time Toyota has sought dismissal of the economic damages lawsuit.
