ARA Announces Class Action Lawsuit Against Takata Corporation Regarding Airbag Recalls
The Automotive Recyclers Association announced that it has filed a class action lawsuit against Takata Corporation, its subsidiaries TK Holdings, Inc. and Highland Industries, Inc. (collectively “Takata”), and numerous automotive manufacturers relating to the massive recall of vehicles containing defective air bags manufactured by Takata.
ARA brought the class action lawsuit on behalf of all persons and entities that operate professional automotive recycling facilities in the U.S. who have purchased for resale any of the vehicles containing un-deployed and allegedly defective air bags manufactured by Takata. The complaint alleges that Takata and the auto manufacturers withheld and or misled automotive recyclers about the safety and reliability of the allegedly defective air bags, which led recyclers to over pay for now worthless air bags.
Takata was aware of the air bag defect as far back as 2004 when it conducted secret tests on several air bags
ARA is represented by Kessler Topaz Meltzer and Check, LLP. The complaint was filed in the United State District Court for the Southern District of Florida.
