Schweitzer is right in the diesel scandal

Thousands of diesel buyers outside Germany can once again hope for damages: Germany’s Federal Court of Justice (BGH) ruled on Monday in a model case involving a Swiss customer that class action requirements had been met.

Foreign diesel buyers have referred their claims against Volkswagen to online service provider Myright. Unlike the courts in Braunschweig before, BGH has now ruled that Myright meets all requirements for eventual collection of claims through class action.

German Financialright GmbH, which is behind Myright, does not have to demonstrate any special expertise in Swiss law. This means that the content of individual claims can now be examined.
