Auto Mediator Assists in Class Certification Denial in Volkswagen Lawsuit

Federal judge ruled in favor of our client, denying class certification in this major consumer fraud class action.

Counsel for Volkswagen retained Auto Mediator in this consumer fraud class action. Auto Mediator founder, Steve Proto’s analysis, was instrumental in the judge’s (U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia) decision in denying class certification.

Mr. Proto argued in his expert report that several factors were overlooked, such as: historical events, condition reports, mileage adjustments, vehicle grading, automotive standards, structural components, and CPO standards, to name a few.

January 2022, the judge denied class certification stating, “the plaintiff expert’s proposed testimony is not based on any reliable methodology.”
