The German government Wednesday approved a draft law allowing U.S.-style class action lawsuits, opening the door for drivers to seek compensation over Volkswagen's diesel emissions cheating scam before the case expires.In one of the largest class-action settlements to date, Volkswagen in 2016 agreed to pay out some $10 billion in buybacks and compensation to 475,000 U.S. car owners after it admitted to equipping millions of vehicles worldwide with software designed to dupe pollution tests.German driver Beate Berger, whose VW Tiguan has had engine problems since the software fix, said she wanted justice.Over 50,000 British drivers started a collective lawsuit against the car giant in March, while a class action lawsuit is also under way in Australia.
