Soon after Volkswagen was exposed for its chicanery in its emissions equipment, we were asked to get involved on behalf of VW owners. But we took a pass, and it increasingly looks like a good thing that we did.
Today, the head of VW announced that it would be relatively easy and cheap to fix the fraudulent software in the cars. If that is true, it will be quite hard to measure the amount by which VW owners were damaged. The value of their cars surely went down, but it may become quite hard to measure all cars the same way, and that may make class action quite difficult.
