Law 360:

Marie Rita Kennedy-Lebar said in a suit filed Tuesday in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey that VW and its affiliates have known about but failed to fix headlights that sporadically shut off, exposing drivers to significant danger. The problem occurs in Audi vehicles equipped with an optional high intensity gas discharge headlamp system with xenon bulbs.

VW claims the high intensity gas discharge headlamp systems are superior to halogen headlights, a less expensive option for VW vehicles, because they produce a greater amount of light, consume less power and are intended to last longer.

But while touting the superiority of the product, VW has known that the systems suffer from intermittent failures due to an underlying systemic problem, the suit says.

Kennedy-Lebar is represented by lawyers from Seeger Weiss LLP, including associate Scott George.
