    As the Diesel Emits: Judge Grants An Extension On the Volkswagen Settlement Discussions


    • The final settlement is coming.. but it has been pushed back.

    Next Tuesday was the deadline that Volkswagen and the U.S. Government would have to finish their discussions on finalizing an agreement over the 2.0L TDI scandal. But last night, U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer has given the two parties an extension to June 28th.

     

    Reuters reports that Breyers gave the extension after a request was made by the court appointment mediator, former FBI director Robert S. Mueller. In a written order, Bryer said "given the highly technical nature of the proposed settlements in these complex proceedings," an extension would be given.

     

    Volkswagen spokeswoman Jeannine Ginivan confirmed to Reuters that the extension was asked by Muller.

     

    "We thank our customers for their continued patience as the process of finalizing agreements moves forward," said Ginivan.

     

    Two sources say the agreement is on track to be finalized.
