November 27, 2015

The Hon. Justice Lindsay Foster said in the Federal Court this morning that he wanted to know before Christmas, what Volkswagen will admit or deny in relation to compensation for consumers over the ‘defeat device’.

“We need to quickly get to the substance of the issue,” said Justice Foster.
VW Australia told the court they have no knowledge of what head office in Germany will admit or deny. Justice Foster gave Volkswagen until 17 December to clarify its position.

Charles Bannister of Bannister Law, one of the legal firms running the class action for approximately 99,000 consumers said, “We were pleased with this morning’s proceedings, because what consumers want is a simple and speedy relief.”
