LONDON, ON and TORONTO and QUÉBEC, Jan. 11, 2018 /CNW/ - Yesterday Siskinds LLP and Sotos LLP filed a proposed national class action against Ford and Bosch regarding certain diesel-powered F-Series Super Duty trucks. Siskinds' Québec-based affiliate, Siskinds Desmeules, also filed a similar action on behalf of Québec residents.
The proposed actions allege that Ford equipped affected vehicles with software that allows them to defeat emissions testing. Bosch is alleged to have developed this software and supplied it to Ford. The actions allege that under common driving conditions, the vehicles emit levels of pollutants that are far higher than advertised and allowed by law.
Together, the actions seek to advance claims on behalf of all individuals or businesses in Canada who purchased or leased a 2011-2017 F-250 or F-350 Super Duty truck with a Power Stroke Turbo Diesel engine.
If you purchased or leased one of these trucks, please contact Siskinds LLP by phone at 1(800) 461-6166 x4221 or by email at [email protected], or Sotos LLP by phone at 1(888) 977-9806 or by email at [email protected]. Quebec residents should contact Siskinds Desmeules by phone at 1(418) 694-2009 or by email at [email protected].
Siskinds, Sotos and Siskinds Desmeules are working with leading U.S. class actions firm, Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP, to prosecute these claims. Hagens Berman filed a proposed class action on behalf of American owners and lessees with the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan in Detroit early yesterday.
