Australia: Volkswagen back in court over emissions scandal

Australian plaintiffs of the class action law suit against Volkswagen over the emission scandal that has embroiled the car company attended the case's fourth, three-hour long court session in Sydney on Thursday.

Lead-plaintiff Richard Cantor expressed his annoyance at what he perceives to be Volkswagen's stonewalling; "It really angers me that they treat consumers with such contempt. Clearly they know they’ve done the wrong thing. They should just own up and say, yes we’ve done the wrong thing and we’ll make recompense."

Solicitor Diane Chapman also spoke about this issue, stating that "the most contentious part of our case is the fact Volkswagen, still in Australia, are denying that there is a defeat device in the vehicles."

Volkswagen had been asked two times previously to provide more material to lawyers representing the some 100,000 car owners involved in the class action.

Chapman expects to be back in court in December. "By that time we are hoping to receive further information from Volkswagen and they will also put on their defence by that time. So we will be in a better positon to actually know what entitlements our affected vehicle owners will be able to have," she said.
