Bloomberg further reported that an order halting the suits after Toyota and the lawyers asked for time to try settling the cases was issued by US District Judge James V. Selna in Santa Ana, California. In his order, Selna said, "Participation in the intensive settlement process is open to all plaintiffs. Cases that do not resolve during the initial settlement conference shall be set for a formal mediation." According to Bloomberg, the move toward settlement comes less than two months after Toyota lost its first trial in a lawsuit claiming an electronic defect can cause its vehicles to speed up uncontrollably, and Toyota settled after an Oklahoma City jury ordered the Company to pay $3 million. Bloomberg further informed that Selna set a hearing for January 14, 2014 for any comment on the said settlement process and stated that settlement conferences would begin in February 2014.
