Update on our appeal in the 9th Circuit Volkswagen Diesel Fraud Case

The Appellate Panel consolidated our Bosch appeal with the Volkswagen appeal and a decision should be announced soon.  If successful the appeal would set aside the largest consumer fraud settlement in history while leaving Volkswagen on the hook.  The settlement allowed Volkswagen to "hide and conceal" claims from the Court and Settlement Master Robert Mueller. 
We filed an action in Butte County yesterday 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.  


Crab health advisory lifted south of Humboldt Bay

Posted by Lacy Fletcher on Sunday, April 24, 2016 Under: Humboldt Bay

Recreational crabbers were given a little more territory to snare tasty Dungeness on Friday when the California Department of Public Health lifted its health advisory along the coast up to Humboldt Bay.

Restrictions on catching the crustaceans were quickly lifted after the decision by Karen Smith, the state health officer. It means crabs can be caught for sport along the California coast up to Humboldt County, including all the waters in the bay.

Commercial crab fishing is still not allowed north of the Sonoma/Mendocino county line, a restriction that has held since the fishing season was officially opened in March, more than four months after the California Department of Fish and Wildlife closed the season because of toxins found in crab meat.

Jordan Traverso, a department spokesperson, said the restrictions could also be relaxed for the commercial industry in about a week. Industry representatives have said in the past they do not want the season opened any farther north until the entire coast of California is free of domoic acid.
