Despite the $1.2 billion settlement obtained from Volkswagen of America on behalf of U.S. Volkswagen dealers, BSM partner, Richard Sox and BSM attorney, Kirby Bissell, continue to litigate legal claims against Robert Bosch, GmbH and its United States subsidiary on behalf of U.S. Volkswagen dealers.  Those claims center on Bosch’s involvement in the creation of the diesel emissions defeat device, the implementation of the defeat device in VW vehicles and the cover-up of the use of the defeat device in those vehicles.

We are now in the discovery phase of the case which involves obtaining documents relevant to the case from Bosch and providing Bosch with certain relevant documents in the possession of the VW dealers acting as the prospective class representatives.  We expect the discovery phase to take several months which will then be followed by the parties filing papers related to obtaining certification of the class of VW dealers from the Court.
