Fiat Chrysler diesel engines allegedly have software enabling them to over-pollute
Earlier this week, the US Government accused Fiat Chrysler of failing to disclose a software in some diesel vehicles that allows them to emit more pollution than allowed under the Clean Air Act.
McCune Wright Arevalo, LLP will be investigating these allegations and has specific experience in litigation involving falsifying emissions testing. For example, McCune Wright Arevalo, LLP were retained by the States of Arizona and Oklahoma to represent them in their litigation against Volkswagen for its use of a “defeat device” to commit massive fraud. Richard McCune also led the litigation that forced first Hyundai Motors of America, and then Ford Motor Company, to admit that they cheated on the EPA miles-per-gallon testing of their vehicles used on the Monroney sticker and in advertisements to market their vehicles. That particular case and our experience with others provides McCune Wright Arevalo, LLP with the knowledge and experience to understand the technical issues involved in emissions fraud cases.
The Courts have also recognized McCune Wright Arevalo’s role in high profile and important auto litigation. Richard McCune has been appointed in leadership positions in high profile multi district litigation cases by Judge James V. Selna in In re: Toyota Motor Corp. Unintended Acceleration Marketing, Sales Practices, and Products Liability Litigation; by Judge George H. Wu in In re: Hyundai and Kia Fuel Economy Litigation; and Judge Kenneth M. Karas in In re: Ford Fusion and C-Max Fuel Economy Litigation.
