Federal Court Preliminarily Approves Class Action Settlement for Volkswagen Vehicles Containing Emissions Control Defeat Devices

On July 26, 2016, the United States District Court for the Northern District of California preliminarily approved a proposed class action settlement for owners of certain Volkswagen 2.0 liter diesel light-duty vehicles for model years 2009 through 2015. At the same time, a number of Virginia Volkswagen owners are pursuing individual claims in a large number of Virginia cases, all of which have been transferred to the Fairfax County Circuit Court. If you purchased one of the affected vehicles listed below, you may wish to consult with a lawyer to see if you could recover more compensation by filing an individual lawsuit than by accepting the class action settlement.
