Tacoma, Sequoia and Tundra
Rusted Frame Settlement

Blood Hurst & O’Reardon has 
reached a $3.4 billion settlement 
to have the frames of certain Toyota Tacoma, Sequoia and Tundra vehicles 
inspected for excessive rust corrosion. Corroded frames are dangerous 
and must be replaced, so we urge 
all class members to have their 
vehicles inspected. When excessive
rust corrosion is found, Toyota will 
replace the frame. The vehicles 
covered are 2005-2010 Tacomas, 
2007-2008 Tundras and 2005-2008 Sequoias. Inspections and frame replacements are at no charge to 
vehicle owners and lessees.

bills and demand full payment.

LADWP Overbilling Litigation

In September 2013, the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power (“DWP”), instituted a new billing system. The billing system is deeply flawed, resulting in the DWP overcharging and incorrectly billing tens of thousands of its customers.
Using the flawed billing system, the DWP sends customers grossly inflated bills for water and power that were never used, miscalculates bills, fails to send its customers bills for many billing cycles in a row, and then sends huge bills for improper, inflated amounts. The DWP also bills based on the customers’ estimated (not actual) water and electricity usage. The estimate calculated by the billing software is wildly inaccurate, and does not reflect the customer’s historic usage, actual usage or reasonable estimated usage.
The class action on behalf of DWP customers is filed in the Los Angeles Superior Court. To read the complaint, click here
