I pulled this off of www.truthaboutrhino.com today - it looks like Yamaha won yet another jury trial - this makes 5 out of 6 in their favor, and it's just a good thing for them and us consumers, all around.....congrats to Team Blue, and I hope these cases just start dropping out and this whole things starts to die off - I also hope this means Yamaha will come out with something super bada$$ to compete with the other UTVs that have been dominating the market these days!

FIFTH JURY VERDICT FOR YAMAHA MOTOR CORPORATION, U.S.A.; JURY IN ALABAMA ONCE AGAIN REJECTS PLAINTIFF’S CLAIMS REGARDING YAMAHA RHINO

Yamaha Statement on McMahon vs Yamaha Decision in Montgomery, AL

CYPRESS, Calif. – OCTOBER 22, 2010 – A jury in Montgomery, Alabama today rejected the plaintiffs’ claims and returned a unanimous defense verdict in McMahon vs Yamaha, a case involving an accident on a Yamaha Rhino. This verdict in favor of Yamaha marks the fifth time that a jury has rejected plaintiffs’ claims regarding the Rhino’s design, finding no defect in the Rhino, and the second in Alabama. In August, a jury in Alexander City, Alabama found for Yamaha in another Rhino trial.

Yamaha is saddened whenever anyone is injured in a Yamaha product-related accident, and we urge all our customers to follow the safety guidelines posted on the Rhino and in the owner’s manual, and to always operate the products in a safe and responsible manner. Drivers and passengers should at all times wear helmets, protective gear including over-the-ankle foot wear, and the vehicle’s three-point seat belts.

The Rhino is a safe and useful off-road vehicle when driven responsibly, and has won virtually every “first in class” award and top safety ratings in independent reviews since its introduction.

Yamaha stands firmly behind the Rhino and will continue to vigorously defend the product.
