      2016 – 2017 TOYOTA TACOMA MAYBE LEAKING DIFFERENTIAL FLUID AND UNSAFE TO DRIVE On April 27, 2017, Toyota Motors Sales filed a Defect report with the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA) disclosing a safety defect in the 2016 – 2017 Toyota Tacoma. The rear differential may leak fluid. The rear differential enables you to drive safely down the road, and cannot function properly without fluid. Toyota stated that 2016 – 2017 Toyota Tacoma trucks should not be driven until any leaking differential is repaired. You may have received a letter from Toyota in June related to the leaking rear differential. However, Toyota does not have parts to repair the rear differential on the Toyota Tacoma.

      Outsourcing Justice – New Book About Federal Arbitration Act

      Paul Bland, Senior Attorney at Public Justice, wrote a piece on Professor Imre Szalai’s new book on arbitration. Here’s what Paul has to say:

      http://publicjustice.net/blog/important-new-book-proves-federal-arbitration-act-badly-distorted-by-supreme-court This post examines a recentlypublished book by an extraordinary law professor, Imre Szalai, who has goneback through the papers of the three men who drafted and lobbied for and pushedthe Federal Arbitration Act.  In painstaking historical detail, reviewingall sorts of primary materials, he establishes convincingly that the FAA wasnever intended to (a) apply to employment contracts at all; or (b) apply totake-it-or-leave-it contracts.  This book is an important development inthe historical scholarship on the Act, and demonstrates conclusively that theFAA has been distorted and mis-shaped by the U.S. Supreme Court in recentdecades.  The Act now covers millions of people and transactions that itwas never intended to address.
