Looks like Toyota is finally moving forward.
A settlement was filed on behalf of the class action lawsuit on Wednesday. The settlement calls for a $1.1 billion payout from Toyota, putting the brakes on the unintended acceleration lawsuit once and for all.
The case never made it to trial, interestingly enough. Toyota settled prior to the case going to trial, probably because of the negative impact that a trial could have on the automaker. That includes bad publicity for Toyota.
