Divisional Court Allows Appeal Against VW in Former Diesel Owners Case
In reasons for decision released on October 4, 2022 a unanimous Divisional Court overturned the dismissal of the Plaintiff’s certification motion in Mackinnon v Volkswagen Group Canada et al and directed a further hearing to determine if the balance of the test for certification has been satisfied. The Plaintiff’s certification motion was initially dismissed in September 2021.
Roy O’Connor LLP is lead counsel in this proposed Canada-wide class action lawsuit against Volkswagen A.G. and a number of its subsidiaries regarding the alleged manipulation of emissions data in a number of 2.0L and 3.0L turbo diesel engines sold under the Volkswagen and Audi brand names.
This proposed class action seeks compensation for Canadians, largely purchasers or lessees who sold or returned their affected vehicles before the emissions issue became public, that did not receive compensation under the existing class action settlements. This action also seeks compensation for other groups excluded from the existing settlements.
