Ford stated that all of its vehicles abide by all U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and California Air Resources Board (CARB) emissions regulations.

The lawsuit, submitted in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of MI, also named German auto provider Robert Bosch GmbH as an offender.

Any persons or businesses in Canada who bought or leased one of the specified trucks can contact Siskinds LLP or Sotos LLP.

The law firm representing the owners, Hagens Berman, has launched lawsuits in 2017 against General Motors and Fiat Chrysler in addition to engine maker Cummins Inc, making similar accusations.

The judges explained to the GOP that they would hire a redistricting expert to draw the new district boundaries if they failed to. However, in a statement from State Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati (R-25), he says the lawsuit should be put to rest.

The suit, which claims Ford's Super Duty trucks can pollute up to 50 times more than allowed, comes just after the company announced it would offer a smaller 3.0-liter V6 diesel in its F-150 and just before this year's North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The suit further alleges that Ford deceived consumers in calling its diesel Super Duty trucks "fuel efficient" and that, without manipulating its software to turn off emissions controls, Ford could not have achieved the fuel economy it promised.

Ford also advertised the trucks as the "cleanest Super Diesel ever", and also added, "proven technology and innovative Ford strategies to meet the latest federal emissions standards".

The lawsuit against Ford, which also names the supplier Bosch as a defendant, said Ford installed "defeat devices" on about a half million 2011-17 Super Duty diesels. "We will defend ourselves against these baseless claims".

In a statement Wednesday, Bosch stated accusations against the company "remain the subject of investigations and civil litigation" and it takes accusations of diesel software application adjustment "very seriously". "Bosch is cooperating with the continuing investigations in various jurisdictions, and is defending its interests in the litigation", according to a statement from company spokeswoman Alissa Cleland.
