TDI Scandal Update: Judge Releases VWoA’s Phone Info Court records show that VWoA’s top U.S. lawyer, David Geanacopoulos, its leader of emissions testing Matthias Barke, and government relations specialist Anna Schneider are among 23 VW employees whose mobile devices where either lost or erased after VW’s TDI scandal broke.
Judge Releases Names Last week, a Virginia court judge released the names of VWoA employees whose phones were lost, wiped clean or bricked. The judge is handling a case filed by VW owners who opted out of the nationwide class action settlement last year.
Geanacopoulos says he lost his phone at LAX and tried to find it. Barke and Schneider claim their phones were locked due to too many incorrectly entered passwords.
