On Friday, October 31, 2014, several consumers filed a class action on behalf of a nationwide class of vehicle owners who own or lease certain vehicles containing defective Takata airbags. The class action seeks to represent the millions of affected vehicle owners throughout the United States. The action was filed in the federal District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, where defective airbag manufacturer Takata Corporation’s American subsidiary is headquartered. These consumers are represented by the experienced class action attorneys at Cafferty Clobes Meriwether & Sprengel LLP.
This class action seeks relief in the form of damages, injunctive and equitable relief, and any other appropriate relief to be determined by the Court.
