Volkswagen is going to pay the state of Ohio $3.5 million in a settlement because of the 2015 Dieselgate scandal. Ohio claims the German automaker violated state laws when it manipulated vehicle computer software to cheat emissions tests, according to Reuters.
In November 2020, the U.S. Supreme Court threw out VW’s bid to avoid lawsuits filed by three states including Ohio. The company argued that under the Clean Air Act, only the federal government can pursue emissions claims. Volkswagen also noted they reached a more than $20 billion settlement with the EPA and vehicle owners over Dieselgate.
