Court decides that groundbreaking £150m class action on behalf of UK car buyers can proceed

London’s specialist competition court, the Competition Appeal Tribunal, on Friday gave the green light to a class action on behalf of millions of motorists and businesses, who bought or leased a new car between October 2006 and September 2015, to claim against 5 shipping companies that imported cars into Europe. The class action is one of the first of its kind to be filed in the UK and is estimated to be worth around £150m in damages for car buyers. Woodsford is backing the claim.
