Volkswagen Class Action Lawsuit Settlement Proposed
A global settlement has been proposed by a federal judge in the Volkswagen emissions fraud case. The settlement involves owners of VW vehicles that have been tampered with cheating on emissions tests. The hearing is set for October 18, 2016, and compensation may begin immediately. However, it could be delayed by the appeals process or the formal claims process. In either case, the plaintiffs should not wait until the settlement process is completed to get compensation.

The court may also appoint a lead attorney for the case. This lawyer will handle the pretrial phase of the case. If the plaintiffs fail to settle, the litigation will proceed to trial. If a settlement is reached, the VW automakers must accept a settlement. In some instances, the government may even make a financial contribution to settle the lawsuit.
A VW class-action lawsuit filed by Matthew Opheim states that VW intentionally misled journalists about the safety of its vehicles. In his lawsuit, he claimed that VW sold defective timing chains to customers. The VW AG had been denying these complaints since the beginning, and the case is currently pending. In addition, the company also admitted to misleading consumers with false information about the defect. This class action lawsuit has caused a financial crisis for many Volkswagen owners. Thankfully, the US district judge has ruled in favor of the plaintiffs.
Whether a VW class action lawsuit will go to trial is entirely up to the court.

The attorneys will keep the class informed and help decide whether to opt out of the class or file their suit.
