Federal Trade Commission Sues Volkswagen for False Advertising over “Clean Diesel” Campaign

WASHINGTON - Today, the Federal Trade Commission filed to sue Volkswagen for fraudulent advertising as a result of the diesel engine emissions scandal that came to light six months ago.

The commission is seeking "permanent injunctive relief, rescission, restitution, the refund of monies paid, disgorgement of ill-gotten monies, and other equitable relief," according to the lawsuit, after "consumers suffered billions of dollars in injury."
