Oregon nets $68M in Volkswagen case

June 30, 2016 --

logo-attorneygeneral-deptjustice222By Oregon Attorney General,

Oregon Governor Kate Brown and Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum  announced two separate settlements with Volkswagen relating to emissions fraud. A federal settlement will require Volkswagen to pay more than $68 million into a trust to support diesel emission reduction programs in Oregon. The federal settlement also includes cash payments to Oregon consumers who purchased a falsely marketed vehicle, and will require VW to buy back or fix certain VW and Audi diesel vehicles.

A separate multistate settlement reached by Attorney General Rosenblum and 37 other Attorneys General will require VW to pay $570 million for violating state laws prohibiting unfair or deceptive trade practices, including a payment of more than $17 million to Oregon. Oregon was among six states that led this investigation, in part because Oregon has the highest per-capita ownership of the affected VW vehicles in the nation.
