Chicago, January 15, 2020 – Firm co-founding Partner Adam J. Levitt is quoted in the Chicago Tribune regarding the final approval of the Navistar settlement. “We’re very happy with the result we reached for the class of Navistar truck owners and lessees. We believe the settlement provides true and meaningful relief and we look forward to the ongoing claims process and being able to distribute money to class members.”
DiCello Levitt served as co-lead counsel in the high-profile class action litigation against Navistar seeking to recover economic losses arising from alleged defects in the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) setups that Navistar used in its MaxxForce 11-liter and 13-liter diesel engines, helping achieve a landmark settlement in the automotive industry.
DiCello Levitt helped a class of truck consumers reach a $135 million settlement to end multidistrict litigation in Illinois federal court alleging the company knowingly sold defective diesel engines. Per the settlement, class members are able to choose a “no questions asked” cash payment of up to $2,500 per truck; a $10,000 rebate off of the best negotiated purchase price of a new truck; or provable out-of-pocket costs up to $15,000 per truck related to the EGR setup.
