Dallas, TX (PRWEB) December 26, 2009 -- Dallas vehicle safety attorney Todd Tracy voluntarily dismissed a
lawsuit to reopen seventeen Toyota accident cases after conducting an in-depth review of documents submitted to
a federal court judge by a former in-house lawyer for Toyota. Tracy's inspection of the records found no evidence
to support allegations made by Dimitrios Biller that Toyota hid or destroyed crash safety data.
"Lawyers have a legal and professional responsibility to pursue cases that are meritorious. The documents I
reviewed did not provide evidence sufficient to me to continue prosecuting these cases at this time," said Tracy.
Biller, who worked as a key lawyer from Toyota from 2003 to 2007, claimed in his own federal fraud and
racketeering case against his former employer that information had been withheld from accident victims in up to
300 civil lawsuits. Biller's allegations prompted Tracy to file suit last September in the Eastern District of Texas
to reopen 17 cases in order to determine if evidence had in fact been withheld.
In a surprise move last October, Biller turned over four boxes of documents to the federal court as evidence to
support Tracy's legal action to reopen the accident cases. Tracy obtained a protective order that set-up a secure
process for the documents to be stored and inspected.
Tracy was given access over a period of several days to a mirror image set of the so called Biller documents that
had been created based on the four boxes that the former Toyota lawyer had delivered to the court.
