Lawrence A. Sucharow describes the motion for expedited discovery and consolidation in the Takata airbags cases as a matter of public safety

Labaton Sucharow filed a motion with the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation to coordinate all pretrial hearings and transfer the cases to the Southern District of Florida before U.S. District Judge James King.

Regarding Judge King, Larry said, “He’s recognized the case involves matters of public safety, and appears to be willing to work on an expedited schedule. He has indicated he’s ready and available to the litigants to hear the matters.”

He added, “We’re looking for all documents being turned over to any regulatory authority that doesn’t violate any privilege,” Sucharow said.
