Emissions suit filed against Volkswagen after court ruling in Israel

Volkswagen is facing a class action suit in Israel after a court ruled in favor of petitioners that were seeking compensation from the automaker over diesel emissions cheating.

A Tel Aviv district court ruled that the class action suit is set to represent the car owners and the general public who were exposed to higher pollution levels,

Volkswagen had no comment on the ruling for now.

The Israeli court ruling has not considered the damages being sought and Michael Bach, one of the lawyers who brought the suit, said they are still tallying the number of vehicle owners who were impacted in Israel and calculating the environmental cost.

Volkswagen has so far spent more than 32 billion euros worldwide in vehicle refits, fines and legal costs.
