Out-of-state Toyota economic loss class action plaintiffs can't borrow California law

It seems an obvious application of choice-of-law principles, given Shutts, but the Toyota MDL judge has finally precluded the frivolous economic-loss class action claim that California law applies to the entire nationwide class. The Bloomberg Business Week article quotes POL's own Michael Krauss. Meanwhile, the lead plaintiffs' lawyer makes his putative clients worse off by continuing to insist contrary to scientific evidence that there is a product defect: at this point, the sole cause of any economic loss by the class is the continued insistence by plaintiffs' lawyers that there is something wrong with Toyotas.
