On March 20, 2018, the California Daily Journal honored Levi & Korsinsky, LLP Partner Rosemary M. Rivas with a California Lawyer Attorney of the Year (CLAY) Award based on her work in In re: Volkswagen “Clean Diesel” MDL, which resulted in unprecedented settlements exceeding $14 billion dollars.  The CLAY awards are given annually to outstanding California practitioners “whose extraordinary work and cases had a major impact on the law.” The Daily Journal wrote that the Volkswagen litigation “involved a world-renowned auto company mired in scandal, a third-party technology company that helped orchestrate one of the largest regulation-evading fraud schemes in history, and thousands of consumers and car dealerships stuck with defective vehicles they could not drive without violating the law.” More than 95 percent of Class members participated in the buyback/repair programs as a result of the case and more than $9 billion in payments have been made. Congratulations to Rosemary M. Rivas for her outstanding work on the Volkswagen litigation.
