February 24, 2020 – Partner Jonathan K. Levine has been appointed as Plaintiffs’ Liaison Counsel in In Re: ZF-TRW Airbag Control Units Products Liability Litigation, a multidistrict action that has been consolidated in the Central District of California before Judge John A. Kronstadt. Plaintiffs allege that airbag control units designed or manufactured by affiliates of ZF TRW Automotive Holdings Corp. and supplied to various automobile manufacturers are dangerous and defective. The defect, according to Plaintiffs, causes airbag control units to stop working during a crash, resulting in non-deployment of air bags and seat belt pretensioners. At least five deaths and eight injuries have been linked to the allegedly defective airbag control units thus far, according to the lawsuits.
