AUTO CENTRAL - March 8, 2010: Back on February 5th, The Auto Channel's Marc Rauch wrote an editorial that was critical of the handling of the whole Toyota SUA situation.

The editorial is titled "Toyota Situation Provides Great Opportunity for America to Examine the Frivolous Lawsuit Epidemic" and can be read by clicking on the link.

In that editorial, Marc referenced a newly completed extensive study that admitted there is no evidence to show Toyota's vehicles are at fault. That study was conducted by an expert research company called Safety Research & Strategies, Inc.

SR&S is a research firm that works with plaintiffs' attorneys on lawsuits related to injuries and/or safety matters. They investigate products and help to determine the level of liability, if any, that a manufacturer or distributor is responsible for. Sean Kane is the president of Strategic Research & Strategies, Inc.

According to information revealed today by Toyota, it seems that the irrelevant tests conducted by Professor David Gilbert that "prove" Toyota vehicles are faulty was done at the request of Sean Kane and/or his company. Therefore, it would appear that Mr. Kane, being dissatisfied with the report issued by his own company, set up a situation that could create a different, perhaps more profitable to him and his attorney clients, outcome.
