Three states, Maryland, New York and Massachusetts, filed civil lawsuits last month against Volkswagen AG for violations of state environmental laws arising from the automaker’s diesel emissions cheating scandal. The civil litigation by the states is separate from the settlement on behalf of consumers and the federal government over emissions cheating.
The recently filed lawsuits are also different from the settlement the automaker reached with the attorneys general of 44 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico to resolve existing and potential state consumer protection claims for a total settlement of $603 million.
