National Steering Committee Appointments Announced
Jan. 25, 2016—David S. Casey Jr. has been appointed by a San Francisco federal judge to the national VW Multidistrict Litigation (MDL) Plantiffs’ Steering Committee overseeing litigation targeting Volkswagen over its diesel emissions scandal.
U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer, who is presiding over the VW MDL, appointed the 22-member nationwide steering committee to oversee hundreds of class action lawsuits filed on behalf of car owners, dealers, lessees and others.
"I am honored by this appointment and to be working on this very important matter before Judge Breyer,” said Casey. “I look forward to working under the direction of lead counsel Elizabeth Cabraser and with this committee of very talented attorneys to quickly bring these claims to a fair resolution for the consumers and businesses nationwide that were adversely impacted by the VW emissions scandal."
