VW Faces Sentencing in Emissions Scandal

Volkswagen AG is slated to be sentenced Friday to a possible nearly $3 billion fine after last month pleading guilty to three criminal charges for its 10-year conspiracy to rig nearly 600,000 diesel cars to cheat U.S. emissions standards. Judge Sean Cox is holding a hearing Friday morning in federal court in Detroit.

VW Diesel Whistleblower Identified in Book

As Volkswagen’s criminal case comes to a close, a nagging question persists: Who blew the whistle and first admitted to regulators that VW was lying about its dirty diesels? Volkswagen AG faces sentencing Friday morning in a Detroit courtroom after pleading guilty last month to three federal felonies for diesel emissions violations, which were brought to light based on information given to federal law enforcement from an internal whistleblower. A new book on the VW diesel emissions scandal by a New York Times reporter asserts that it was an American VW executive who first disclosed VW’s criminal acts to regulators.

NADA Introduces Tiered Life Insurance Program

NADA knows that employee retention is paramount for running a successful dealership. To that end, a group insurance plan has been developed to meet the life insurance needs of dealer members. The NADA Insurance group program has been revamped to offers tiers of life insurance coverage based on three specific groups: dealer owners, dealer managers and all other employees. In addition, there are three different plan coverage levels to choose from, providing flexible options to meet the dealerships’ group benefit goals.
