VW car owners from the UK, Germany, Spain, France, Italy, Greece, Poland, Switzerland, Czech Republic and Ukraine, represented by GJN attorneys, joined a motion filed in the US Court on 13. April 2016 asking that VW be ordered to produce documents for use in litigation planned to be filed against VW in Europe. The motion was based upon a US federal law, 28. U.S.C. § 1782, that permits interested persons to apply to a US Court for an order for “discovery” to be used outside the United States. In the motion, car owners ask that VW be ordered to hand over to them all “discovery”, documents and other things, that VW will be required to produce within the U.S. multi-district litigation.
