(Best Syndication News) Toyota was in the habit of not turning over damaging information during court trials, according to an attorney who worked for the company (see videos below).

Attorney Dimitrios Biller said that Toyota regularly did not produce “memos, minutes, reports, and e-mails” that could hurt their case. The cases involved unintended acceleration and roll-over crashes. Information that could help the plaintiffs were in what Toyota calls their “Books of Knowledge”. These books were not brought forth at trial. Information in these books includes memos and e-mails.

Deborah Feyerick and Sheila Steffen of CNN report that Biller took 6,000 documents along with his severance pay when he left the company. These documents prove his claim that information was hidden from opposing council that could “establish liability against Toyota in product liability and negligence cases.”

Biller left the company with $4 million in severance, but now says he left because he didn’t like the "criminal acts" done by Toyota.

Jeff Embry, attorney for Biller, said “They were very careful to keep design information and very important information in Japan out of reach of our system.”

Toyota claims these documents were trade secrets and could not be disclosed. “Saying they are trade secret doesn’t mean you get to keep them secret from the court system,” Embry added.

Biller said he wanted to produce the documents but was told not to by his employer.

Now US lawmakers are looking into this Book of Knowledge.
