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.  

 

Green Road Consulting One Stop Shop of Horrors?

Posted by Fred Fletcher on Thursday, February 22, 2018 Under: Green Road Consulting
A consultant hired to assist with cannabis projects should follow the law. 

Green Road Consulting is a civil engineer firm based in Humboldt who has experienced a drop in new customers since no one is filing new applications at the moment. 

Instead of addressing the needs of current clients, Green Road is illegally marketing legal services.  



The unauthorized practice of law is a misdemeanor in California.  A civil engineer firm has no expertise in entity formation.  The transition between a non-profit to profit entity is ripe with potential liabilities. 

Perhaps, Green Road is soliciting clients for their own lawyer? This would violate the solicitation rules because no law firm is disclosed.  Any applicant who contracts with Green Road faces potential liability and revocation of license. 

In either scenario Green Road markets itself as a consultant for legal compliance, and they're breaking the law themselves. 

Will Green Road start doing taxes as well?  

If you have been a victim of Green Road's unauthorized practice of law you may file a complaint here

We have received numerous complaints about Green Road from applicants who's permits are not being processed.  With the complexity and evolution of local and State regulations any business who markets itself as a "one stop shop" should be avoided. 

There is a misconception with young entrepreneurs in Humboldt that exponential growth should be the prime objective. For international businesses exponential growth makes sense. In a small community like Humboldt growth without concerns for quality assurance is a road to disaster. 

Green Road is amazingly talented at marketing but what else?
