Update on Diesel Bro Lawsuit
Here is the latest update on UPHE’s lawsuit to hold the Diesel Brothers accountable for illegally dismantling and removing pollution control devices from diesel trucks.
“Attorneys for an environmental group have recommended that a maximum $4.4 million in Clean Air Act penalties could be assessed against the Diesel Brothers reality TV stars for rigging diesel pickup trucks to foil pollution controls.
Utah Physicians for a Healthy Environment urged U.S. District Judge Robert Shelby in court documents last week to impose penalties up to that amount against the truck builders for illegally modifying or selling 20 trucks and selling “defeat devices” to truck owners nationwide.“
UPHE is proud to step forward and take actions like this, especially given that, for whatever reason, our own state government did not.
We have also filed suit against a national business, TAP Worldwide, that has two stores in Utah, under the name 4 Wheel Parts, that are selling illegal parts for the same purpose. These businesses have illegally been adding to the pollution we all are plagued with on the Wasatch Front, and we intend to put a stop to it.
