Bimmer “still” in Israel following a court order for a $1.2 million fine and six-month ban on driving, the manufacturer of the luxury sports car said on Wednesday.
The German media outlet Handelsblatt reported the court ruling in the German state of Bavaria against BMW, the largest German carmaker.
The decision means that “there is no longer a legal basis to enforce the fine” issued earlier this month against the company, according to the newspaper.
In a statement, the company said that the “order was issued under duress and was based on a number of unfounded and unfounded accusations and accusations, including the use of false information in order to obtain a monetary settlement from the plaintiffs.”
The Bimmer case is one of several in recent years involving German carmakers over alleged “unfair” practices, including in the United States, where a federal judge ruled last year that Volkswagen cheated on emissions tests in the emissions-control programs of some diesel vehicles.
The company’s $1 billion lawsuit against U.S. regulators and Volkswagen was dropped earlier this year after a federal appeals court ruled that Volkswagen did not breach federal law.
In January, a German court also ruled that the German company, whose brand name translates as “motor,” must pay $14.6 billion to settle charges that it defrauded consumers of $7 billion.
