There is so much good legal stuff to talk about today we have to call our own -- Mark Lanier of the Lawndale football thumb is here in the studios in New York City that's all with Toyota.
Recalling one point seven million vehicles not related to those unintended acceleration cases right of which you are a -- For this recall is very good news to you is because -- -- the jury pool doesn't.
It does help the public perception that there is something seriously wrong Toyota and way to make the vehicle's.
It won't come into evidence but it's exactly what you said Stuart it's it's that.

And -- whole place would it affect the coming years until the payout from Toyota -- you know.
We won the first Vioxx case in 2005 we haven't -- that payout yet.
If ideas like this -- right right that's still that money could it all and I discovered that yes expense money came out take your says that the case it was delayed guess those -- and -- delayed is justice denied that type of anybody's escalate for the lawyers cannot -- -- of -- -- taking care -- -- the president said last night in the state of the union speech quote.
I am willing to look at the medical malpractice reform all rain in a frivolous lawsuits there was applause and -- You know you know he is -- present there's no way you can get real -- reform from President Obama well it depends I'm all for.
