Report: Toyota to pay $10 million in Lexus suit


Attorney Larry Willis, who represents the dealership that lent the Lexus, released the amount Thursday to the Los Angeles Times.

The dealership was privy to the confidential September settlement but has not yet reached a deal with those who sued it.

A Los Angeles judge on Monday denied a motion by Toyota and the plaintiffs to keep the settlement sealed. Toyota had 48 hours to file a stay with a California appeals court. An e-mail message left for a Toyota spokesman by The Associated Press was not immediately returned.

The August 2009 crash near San Diego killed off-duty California Highway Patrol Officer Mark Saylor, his wife, their daughter and Saylor's brother-in-law.
