Update on Volkswagen Diesel Fraud Case

We filed an action in Butte County on May 17, 2018 with the intent of having a jury decide punitive damages. We would be the first party to bring the defeat device case to jury trial.  Peer reviewed studies proved thousands of people with lung diseases died from the fraud.  


California legislative panel has approved seven gun-control bills

Posted by Lacy Fletcher on Friday, April 22, 2016 Under: Gun Control

Democrats on the Senate Public Safety Committee voted Tuesday to require that people who make homemade guns get a background check and apply for a serial number. Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de Leon says the bill would help police track guns used in crimes. Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed a similar measure in 2014.

SB-1407 Firearms: identifying information. Introduced by Sen. Kevin de Leon, this bill would require people who make homemade guns to get a background check and apply for a serial number.

SB-880 Firearms: assault weapons. Introduced by senators Isadore Hall and Steve Glazer, this bill would expand the definition of "assault weapon" to include semi-automatic, centerfire rifles with easily detachable magazines.

SB-894 Firearms: lost or stolen: reports. Introduced by Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, this bill would require gun owners to report the theft or loss of a firearm to a local law enforcement agency within five days.

SB-1235 Ammunition. Introduced by Sen. Kevin de Leon, this bill attempts to get around a court order barring enforcement of a 2009 law requiring stores to keep records on purchases of handgun ammunition by updating the definition of "ammunition."

SB-1446 Firearms: magazine capacity. Introduced by Sen. Loni Hancock, this bill would make it an infraction for a person to possess a large-capacity magazine, defined under existing law as an ammunition-feeding device that holds more than 10 rounds.

SB-1006 Firearm Violence Research Center. Introduced by Sen. Lois Wolk, this bill would request that the University of California establish a center for the research of firearm-related violence.

SB-1037 Firearms. Introduced by Sen. Ben Allen, this bill would postpone the start of the statute of limitations for certain crimes involving the transfer of firearms.
