It is a 'budgetary commitment' for the state to sue Volkswagen.
How to explains a spokesperson from the ministry of finance in Baden-Württemberg, that you have decided to take action against the car giant. The German state has reportedly spent a great part of the VW group diesel cars as tjenestekøretøjer, patrol cars, and the like, which has been shown to be involved in the rampant dieselskandale.

The shortcut was discovered back in 2015, and the VW was then required to update the cars.
nevertheless, believe the state now that it should be compensated for the situation.
the Frankfurter Allgeime Zeitung writes that the VW according to the authorities in Baden-Württemberg have done the 'intentionel and immoral harm' on the state, which has about 11 million inhabitants.
How big this injury has been, is, the authorities, however, have not yet come forward to, as it still is by counting together, how many scandal hit cars, you have made use of. Only then will the state establish a claim for damages and sue the giant.
