Counterparty’s procedural steps
During the proceedings, DAF filed a motion to join the other truck manufacturers in the proceedings in respect of our claim.
DAF has already made such a request, but this request has not yet been decided upon as the proceedings have been transferred to the District Court of Amsterdam. In contrast to the previous application, DAF is now also requesting to join Iveco Group N.V. (Iveco was not mentioned in the previous DAF application).
On 15 June 2022, the court allowed DAF to initiate proceedings against the others. DAF’s statement of reply date has been set for 7 December 2022.
Current status of the court proceedings in our claim
Irrespective of the decision to join the other producers in the proceedings, the original deadline of 7 December 2022 remains for a comprehensive statement of the counterparty’s claims. We will therefore still only be able to bring you news during this year regarding related actions before the Amsterdam court and other courts across the EU that could affect the development of our action.
For the moment, therefore, it remains that we await the counterparty’s December statement, which will take us further.
