Toyota - Congressional panel investigating!

Here's the story from the National Law Journal. A subscription (which is free) may be required to access it. In the story is information contained in a letter, which the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, U.S. Rep. Edolphus Towns recently wrote to Yoshimi Inaba, of Toyota, regarding documents which... 
"shed some light on Toyota's handling of the sudden unintended acceleration problem" and "indicate a systematic disregard for the law..."  
In yet another story, a former attorney of Toyota's was mentioned. Dimitrious Biller was in charge of rollover litigation for about four years. The NLJ story mentions the company sued BIller in 2008 for:
"[violating] the terms of his $3.7 million severance agreement by divulging information protected under the attorney-client privilege." 
Biller apparently suffered a mental breakdown, and is suing Toyota, blaming his breakdown on the fact that under the attorney-client privilege, he owed Toyota a duty not to disclose the "criminal evidence" and "criminal acts." 

Mammon being a term used to describe wealth and its evil influences, the attorney's dilemma is this:
"Ye cannot serve God and Mammon." ~New Testament.
