GSP Lawsuit on Behalf of BMW M3 Owners Allowed to Proceed

GSP serves as counsel in a class action lawsuit brought by owners or lessees of 2008 – 2013 model year BMW M3 vehicles. The case was brought on behalf of California residents and alleges that the S65 motors installed in the M3 contain defective rotating assemblies leading to rod and main bearing failure, and eventually, catastrophic engine failure. The lawsuit seeks damages and other relief for the owners and lessees.

On July 28, 2017, United States District Court Judge Madeline Cox Arleo denied BMW, NA’s motion to dismiss plaintiffs’ fraud claims and claims under the California consumer protection laws. The Court’s decision means that the case can now proceed to the discovery stage where Plaintiffs will have an opportunity to review BMW’s evidence related to the alleged defect.
