Toyota suing Old GM over shutdown of NUMMI plant?
Toyota states that when General Motors pulled away from the NUMMI facility in 2009, it breached the contract between the two automakers. The $73 million covers research and development costs that were poured into the Fremont, California facility before it was shuttered last year.
The plant now belongs to Tesla, who purchased it from Toyota in May of 2010, for $42 million.
