United States of America v. Takata Corporation
ORDER denying Motions to establish crime victim status 8 and 9 Signed by District Judge George Caram Steeh. (MBea)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
CASE NO. 17-mc-50300
HON. GEORGE CARAM STEEH
ORDER DENYING MOTIONS TO ESTABLISH
CRIME VICTIM STATUS (Doc. 8 and 9)
On February 27, 2017, Takata Corporation (“Takata”) pled guilty to
one count of wire fraud in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1343, arising out of its
fraudulent misrepresentations regarding its defective airbag inflators to
Original Equipment Manufacturers (“OEMs”). On the same date, the court
entered a Restitution Order requiring, among other things, that Takata pay
restitution in the amount of $125,000,000 to the individuals who suffered or
will suffer personal injury caused by the malfunction of a Takata airbag
inflator who have not already resolved their claims against Takata. Now
before the court are two motions (Doc. 8 and 9) filed pro se by Oleg Yarin.
Yarin seeks an order from this court and a designation by the United States
Attorney’s Office establishing that he is the victim of crimes perpetuated by
Takata because his automobile has allegedly been fitted with a defective
Takata airbag. Yarin does not allege that he suffered any personal injury
as a result of a defective Takata airbag inflator. As a result, Yarin is not
covered by the Restitution Order. Accordingly, Yarin’s motions (Doc. 8
and 9) are DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
