SHARE Published: October 18, 2016 4:15 AM EDT Author: AP Judge to hear objections to $10B Volkswagen emissions deal SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – A federal judge on Tuesday was set to hear from Volkswagen owners opposed to a $10 billion settlement over the automaker’s emissions cheating scandal before he determines if the deal is fair to consumers.More than two dozen people – many of them car owners unhappy with the proposed settlement – signed up to address U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer in San Francisco. He will decide whether to give the deal final approval, though he may not issue a ruling at the hearing. The judge gave it preliminary approval in July.The settlement calls for Volkswagen to spend up to $10 billion to buy back or repair about 475,000 Volkswagens and Audi vehicles with 2-liter diesel engines and pay their owners an additional $5,100 to $10,000 each. Any repair options have yet to be finalized.Vehicles with that type of engine make up the vast majority of the roughly 560,000 cars caught up in the scandal.Attorneys who negotiated the deal have said it includes substantial payments to car owners and has resounding support. More than 311,000 people have registered for the settlement and less than 3,300 people have opted out, the attorneys said in a court filing last month urging Breyer to give the deal final approval.Some owners have said they should receive the full purchase price of their vehicles. Others have opposed deductions for extra mileage.The settlement also includes $2.7 billion for unspecified environmental mitigation and an additional $2 billion to promote zero-emissions vehicles. The combined $14.7 billion deal would be the largest auto scandal settlement in U.S. history.The scandal erupted in September 2015 when the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said the German automaker had fitted many of its cars with software to fool emissions tests, putting dirty vehicles on the road. Car owners and the U.S. Department of Justice sued.The software recognized when the cars were being tested on a treadmill and turned on pollution controls. The controls were turned off when the cars returned to the road. The EPA alleged the scheme let the cars spew more than 40 times the allowable limit of nitrogen oxide, which can cause respiratory problems in people.Volkswagen still faces potentially billions more in fines and penalties and possible criminal charges Do you see a typo or an error?

In one of the texts on the day of the murder at 4:29pm, MASONN wrote, “I just done with dealing with people Ima end up hurting someone lol” SHELLY replied that she understood and is trying to get others to pay her the money they owe to her.” Masonn Byrd, 25, of Kenai was taken into custody for the Sunday morning shooting deaths of Lisa Rutzebeck and her mother Rachelle Armstrong. FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享A Kenai man that was arrested late Tuesday in connection with the murder of two women told a family member it was over an unpaid drug debt, according to court documents. At this time the investigation is ongoing. Additional details will be posted as they are made available. Police found the two women in an apartment on California Avenue with gunshot wounds to the head and bullet casings for a .380-caliber automatic. Byrd faces two charges of first-degree murder, he was arraigned in Kenai Wednesday morning. According to court documents, “During a review of RACHELLE (SHELLY) ARMSTRONG’s cellphone, multiple conversations related to dealing drugs were located. Additionally, the records indicated that SHELLY owed MASONN BYRD money for a drug debt. Their text conversations continued throughout the day and finished approximately 20 minutes before the murders. Byrd’s phone pinged a cell tower in the neighborhood three minutes before the murders were reported, according to the documents. “MASONN BYRD was interviewed and denied involvement. DWIGHT DAVIS, MASONN’S grandfather, was also interviewed. DWIGHT stated that MASONN had told him, the morning after the shooting, that he shot the two women and that he was going to throw the gun into the river. MASONN also told DWIGHT that the shooting occurred over money and that he thought he would get away with it because there were no witnesses.”
