U.S. judge dismisses part of diesel criminal case against Fiat Chrysler engineer

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A judge in Detroit on Tuesday dismissed a portion of a criminal case against a Fiat Chrysler FCHA.MI senior manager who was charged as part of the government’s probe into cheating on diesel emissions tests by the automaker.

Emanuele Palma was charged in September 2019 with making and causing Fiat Chrysler to make misstatements to U.S. regulators about diesel engines’ emission control systems and wire fraud.

Palma, an Italian citizen and auto engineer, is set to go trial in April 2021.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Detroit, Fiat Chrysler and lawyers for Palma did not immediately comment late Tuesday.Reuters News
