VOLKSWAGEN CALLS U.S. EMISSIONS LAWS: A MISSION IMPOSSIBLE—HILLIARDâ€™S RESPONSE: THEN GET OUT
CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (December 11, 2015) Volkswagen revealed Thursday that it outfitted many of its diesel vehicles with software designed to cheat emissions regulations because the company initially concluded it was â€œimpossibleâ€ to meet strict U.S. nitrogen oxide standards.
Robert C. Hilliard, of Hilliard Munoz Gonzales, who represents thousands of clients with claims against Volkswagen states, â€œIf VW canâ€™t make my clientsâ€™ cars legal, then â€œcase closedâ€. We have prevailed. Under the law, VW owes my clients three-times the purchase price my clients paid for their vehicles, plus all costs. This is simple black letter law in every state in this country.â€
Earlier this year, the Environmental Protection Agency launched an investigation into Volkswagenâ€™s conduct. VW installed "defeat device" software in some 11 million vehicles in order to deceive consumers about the efficacy of its "clean diesel" vehicles and cheat on environmental emissions tests.
â€œVW will likely not survive this scandal. And probably doesnâ€™t deserve to,â€ says Hilliard.â€œVW should dare not whisper one complaint about what this scandal will cost them. They made a deal with the devil and now find themselves stuck riding this demon of their own design.A conscious corporate decision reaching unheard of depths of deceit means only one thing: time to padlock the doors and let history deal with this criminal company.â€
