LOS ANGELES — After years of legal wrangling, the first of hundreds of lawsuits against Toyota Motor Corp. over vehicle acceleration problems has been scheduled for trial.

The bellwether lawsuit, over a crash that killed two people in Utah, will be the first to be weighed in court, a federal judge said Friday.

U.S. District Judge James Selna told attorneys the case of 38-year-old Charlene Jones Lloyd and 66-year-old Paul Van Alfen, whose Toyota Camry slammed into a wall in Utah in 2010, is scheduled to go to trial in February 2013.
