Scott Cole & Associates files class action lawsuit over Volkswagen emissions fraud

ABR Staff Writer Published 20 January 2016

A class action lawsuit was filed on January 19, 2016 by Scott Cole & Associates, APC on behalf of plaintiffs Darin Petersen, et al., against Volkswagen in connection with its use of illegal software to cheat U.S. emissions standards for nearly a half million domestic vehicles.

This case joins the scores of individual and class actions already filed against the automaker, many of which having been consolidated in San Francisco and assigned to U.S. District Court Judge Charles R. Breyer pursuant to a judicial panel's decision reached last month.

"We are thrilled these actions will be managed in our backyard and by this skilled jurist," says class action attorney Scott Cole, who will lead the Petersen case. "This litigation will likely be immense and will demand a team of extremely-qualified advocates to ensure VW fully answers for its actions."

The lawsuit is entitled Petersen, et al. v. Volkswagen Group of America, Inc., et al. (U.S.D.C., Northern District Case # 3:16-cv-00300) and will be prosecuted by Scott Cole & Associates, APC and co-counseled by the Law Offices of Timothy P. Rumberger.

For well over two decades, Oakland-based Scott Cole & Associates, APC has served as one of California's premiere class action law firms, dedicating itself to representing individuals in consumer rights and employment litigation.
