Volkswagen & Audi Timing Chain Defect Investigation by KGG

  The firm is currently investigating possible defects in timing chain tensioning systems installed in certain VW models, including the following: Audi A3, A4, A5, Volkswagen CC, Beetle, EOS, Golf/GTI, Jetta, Passat, Sports Wagon, and Tiguan (the “Subject Vehicles”). This defect involves 2009 through 2012 2.0 TSI engines and Audi 3.2 or 4.2 Engines ,which are the VW/Audi primary four or six cylinder gasoline engine for the U.S. market during this time period. The tensioner one way ratchet/pawl design is supposed to allow the hydraulic tensioner pistons to only move outward from the tensioner body in steps to adjust for chain strength and chain rail wear. The design of this cheap metal pawlretainer chip is insufficient to keep the tensioner piston from being forced back into the body under certain conditions usually when the engine reaches 30-50,000 miles plus. It appears that the evidence demonstrates VW/Audi knew of the problem…

Proposed Fantasy Sports MDL Teems With Venue Requests

  By Carolina Bolado Law360, Fort Myers (January 28, 2016, 9: 27 PM ET) — Both plaintiffs and defendants involved in dozens of proposed class actions aimed at fantasy sports websites DraftKings Inc. and FanDuel Inc. pitched consolidation of the  cases Thursday, but they were all over the  map about the venue. In a hearing in Fort Myers, Florida, the Judicial  Panel on  Multidistrict  Litigation  heard pleas for consolidation in the Southern District of New York, the Southern District of Florida, the Eastern District of Louisiana,  the  Southern  District of  Illinois, the  District of  Colorado  and the  District of  Massachusetts. Because the suits’ claims are not identical — some allege insider trading, others deceptive marketing and others that the contests are illegal forms of gambling — several plaintiffs argued for coordination before a single judge, but not necessarily consolidation. Gary Graifman of Kantrowitz Goldhamer & Graifman PC, who represents a…

Lawsuits Could Force VW to Buy Back Cheating Diesels

Volkswagen almost inevitably will have to compensate owners of diesel cars equipped with emissions-rigging software. Some legal experts say the automaker could be forced to buy back the cars altogether. Many of the more than 200 lawsuits filed in the past few weeks allege that for seven years VW marketed four-cylinder diesel Golfs, Jettas, Beetles and Passats as clean alternatives to gas engines, knowing all along that the cars were spewing pollution that far exceeded legal limits.
