SAN FRANCISCO – An Alameda consumer alleges his Toyota Prius has defective headlights.
Michael Robey filed a complaint on behalf of a class of similarly situated individuals on Dec. 16 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Toyota Motor Sales USA Inc. alleging violation of the California Consumer Legal Remedies Act, the California Unfair Competition Law and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he suffered damages from purchasing a 2010 Toyota Prius that has a defective headlight lamp that burned out prematurely. The plaintiff holds Toyota Motor Sales USA Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to disclose to consumers the defective nature of the headlights equipped on its vehicles.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks provide a notice to all class members, reimburse all current and former owners of the class vehicles, consequential and incidental damages, order the defendant to immediately cease the sale and leasing of the class vehicles without first notifying consumers about the defect, damages and restitution, compensatory, exemplary and statutory damages, plus interest, disgorgement, all legal fees plus interest, and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Mark S. Greenstone and Lionel Z. Glancy of Glancy Prongay & Murray LLP in Los Angeles.
