Jury Verdict


 Jury Verdict*

On March 2, 2016, a Bexar County jury rendered a verdict of $124,496,993.97 in favor
of a catastrophically injured 11 year old child, Jesse Rivera, Jr., and assessed joint and
several liability against Audi AG and Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. The trial
lasted 4 weeks; the jury deliberated 3 days. The jury found that the Audi seat was
defective and unreasonably dangerous because it collapsed in a foreseeable
automobile accident.

Plaintiffs and against Defendant Volkswagen Group of America, Inc.
in the amount of $125,349,340.
