The Green Mountain State is seeing red.
“Vermont has turned down Volkswagen’s U.S. emissions cheating settlement offer and opted to sue Audi, Porsche and VW for showing a “blatant disregard” for the protection of the state’s natural resources and the health of its residents.”
As part of their deal with the government, VW agreed to spend $15 billion to put out fires and settle lawsuits, but Vermont’s attorney general says they don’t want any part of it. Namely because the settlement breaks down to roughly $1000 per vehicles for violating VT’s consumer protection laws.
Vermont doesn’t think that’s enough for the damage that was done.
