Volkswagen has been hit with more than 175 class actions in 32 states since news of its emissions troubles came to light last month. Almost all the suits have been brought on behalf of consumers alleging they were duped into paying premium prices for “clean diesel” vehicles that exceeded U.S. regulatory standards. Others have been filed by dealership franchises. The cases are in addition to investigations by the U.S. Justice Department, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and attorneys general in at least 28 states, the National Journal reports.
