Next milestone and time expectations


Now that three Federal Supreme Court (BGH) judgments have been delivered*, all of which are favourable to plaintiffs, the lower courts are called upon to determine the extent of damages.

The Federal Supreme Court (BGH) strongly backed the proceedings in Munich by requesting a universal expert opinion on the entire range of purchases across all brands and across all years.

In Munich, the court-appointed expert, Prof. Dr. Falck (IFO Institute for Economic Research), is expected to present initial results towards the end of Q2 2022.

After that, these findings will be used for the individual proceedings.

* The 3 judgements:
Federal Supreme Court (BGH) KZR 35/19, Truck Cartel I
Federal Supreme Court (BGH), KZR 19/20, Truck Cartel II
Federal Supreme Court (BGH), KZR 20/20 (this one did not get a unique identifier from the BGH because it says virtually the same thing as in Truck Cartel II)
