Germany's top court grant use of VW documents in diesel probe

Germany's highest court says investigators can examine internal documents seized last year from automaker Volkswagen as part of a probe into the diesel emissions scandal.

The Federal Constitutional Court on Friday dismissed a legal complaint from Volkswagen seeking to block authorities from using the documents for their investigation.

Volkswagen has been embroiled in a scandal involving its diesel vehicles since 2015, when US authorities revealed the company had used engine software to cheat on emissions tests.

The scandal has also already cost Volkswagen $20-billion in fines and civil settlements in the United States.
