For any readers who own a Volkswagen you may be interested to hear that a group action against VW continues.
One of the largest ever group actions in the courts in England and Wales it is currently expected to be heard at a trial in 2021. The litigation centres around whether or not the software VW installed was a ‘defeat device’.
If successful, then thousands of Claimants are likely to be awarded compensation for purchasing their vehicle. The more cynical of you out there may speculate as to the level of legal fees being incurred by the parties; figures that will in no doubt be revealed one way or another in due course but at a recent hearing it was estimated that VW’s bill for disclosure of evidence alone could exceed £100 million!
