Toyota's Hired Gun


When Toyota goes to Capitol Hill this week, or before a federal grand jury at a date to be announced,  they won't be walking in alone.

The Los Angeles Times has a profile of the U.S. company Toyota has hired in hopes of disproving claims that their cars are capable of unintended acceleration caused by electronic throttles.

Previous clients? Exxon (Valdez), NASA (Challenger), FEMA (Oklahoma City federal building bombing) and at least one of Toyota's competitors (Ford).
