The Daimler Group has settled further legal proceedings against a monetary payment in Diesel’s case. In Canada, protracted legal disputes may now be settled by the fact that the Stuttgart Group owes about 250 million Canadian dollars (175 million euros), as the Dax Group announced on Friday evening.
The agreement affects approximately 83,000 Mercedes diesel vehicles. This agreement has not yet been approved by the courts of Canada. With the cash payment, Daimler is adjudicating a class action lawsuit by Canadian consumers involving Mercedes-Benz diesel cars from model years 2009 to 2016 and light diesel commercial vehicles of the Sprinter type from 2010 to 2016.
The group denies the allegations
Daimler continues to refute the plaintiffs’ main allegations and seeks to avoid legal and financial risks with cash payments. Daimler had already compared itself to plaintiffs and officials. The same was the case in the United States, when the company agreed, among other things, to the US Justice Department a payment of more than US$2 billion in the fall of last year to settle civil fines and settle class. Action lawsuit against car owners.
In Germany, the Stuttgart Public Prosecutor’s Office imposed a fine of about 870 million euros as part of the Diesel case two years ago for negligent breach of supervisory duties. (dpa/mer)
