Fiat Chrysler Accused of Installing Defeat Device Software
The EPA has recently accused Fiat Chrysler of installing software that appeared to emit lower emissions during pollution tests. The software was installed in 2014-2016 Diesel Dodge Ram Pickup Trucks and 2014-2016 Jeep Grand Cherokees with 3.0-liter diesel engines.
The software in the vehicles is thought to reduce the amount of nitrogen oxide emitted during emissions tests, obscuring the fact that the vehicles emit more pollution than is allowed under the Clean Air Act. Volkswagen was sued for installing similar software in its vehicles and settled for $14.7 billion dollars.

I am very grateful to Whitfield Bryson for taking the initiative in filing suit against the manufacturers of defective CSST pipe. I am sure that this successful litigation will now help Maryland homeowners become aware of the danger of old style CSST pipe and to let them know what steps they may take to protect themselves against those dangers. Who knows how many lives and homes may be saved as a result of his efforts. Thank you for your important work in this litigation.
