Update to Class Action Lawsuit Against BMW and Mercedes-Benz

If you have imported a BMW or Mercedes-Benz vehicle from the United States into Canada and have had to pay fees for letters of admissibility, recall clearance and/or BMW and Mercedes-Benz mandated modifications, this update may affect you:


The Honourable Mr. Justice Sproat, Administrative Judge for Class Proceedings in Central West Region, Ontario Superior Court of Justice, has appointed a case management judge in the proceeding. The parties are moving towards the certification hearing, which will determine whether the proceeding can continue as a class action.

The claim is being put forward to represent all persons in all provinces and territories in Canada who have incurred losses as a result of the alleged conduct.
