Auto Mediator Assists in Class Certification Denial in Volkswagen Lawsuit
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.”

From Our Clients
I was very happy when after submitting Auto Mediator's Diminished Value report the other side immediately acknowledged his expertise and his brand. I was able to recover the fair amount $70,000+.
The amazing comprehensive and detailed appraisal report he wrote, I was able to get reimbursed over $10,000 dollars for Loss of Use on top of what I received for my Diminished Value Claim.
