State hate for VW Dieselgate

A trio of US state attorneys general have sued Volkswagen for allegedly fudging emissions results.

New York, Maryland, and Massachusetts have jointly dragged the German automaker in court, accusing it of violating environmental regulations. The charges stem from the revelation that testers manipulated emissions results on several VW, Audi, and Porsche models.

The three states are all seeking "significant penalties" from the automaker as an example and deterrent for other companies that would consider pulling a similar stunt. ®
