a preview complained in u.s. courts about investors making similar arguments as the as he does these. experts say that any potential cost related to these charges should not be huge when you compare it to the billions of dollars the company has have paid so far as you mention. considers they complain fraud and it will contain these charges it defends these securities were sold only to sophisticated investors who were not harmed and that received payments of interest and principal in full and on time and things will see if regulators to make more headway than american investors their news from another big automaker has a ford saying it's lashing five thousand jobs in germany what's what's going on there. will see even afford already announcing generally the intention to revolve laws and making european business which is typically a way of advancing that cost saving measures such as job cuts are coming by the
