It will be really interesting to see what investigators found wrong in the electronics if anything. A $3m mistake? Yipes!

When sw malfuctions on our iphone, it's inconvenience.

but when sw kills a person? that's a big deal.

wow, that is pretty wild. I'm surprised that they can find toyota liable without proof of what actually caused the accident. Or did they have proof but they just aren't publishing it yet? From the article it seems they're still looking for a difinitive answer.

I suspect that ultimately the only thing this verdict will prove is that lawyers can always hire "experts" in a particular field to bamboozle juries.  A jury comprised of dispassionate engineers would probably have arrived at a different decision...

I personally know an Engineer, fresh from college, who was a victim of Camry's unintended acceleration.. (now don't ask me which recent college grad would buy a Camry). He had a tough time explaining this in court.

I agree with @rich.pell...I think people just take advantage of US court system

Caleb, there is proof. Lots of it. We just hadn't been able to talk to experts who testified at the court because they were under a gag order.

You will see more detailed analysis later today.

I do not fully understand the history of the jury but sometimes the jury decisions can be highly dependent on the lawyers. Though, in this particular case it does not seem to be the case. But still i believe that qualified judges should take the decisions instead of compassionate people.

I think that this opens a path for more cases to follow. Surely a bad news for Toyota as it might go for out of court settlements for the most cases.

It appears that we will all have to wait until after the punitive phase to learn about the evidence that proves software bugs were responsible.
