BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Volkswagen believes it can fix 85,000 polluting U.S. vehicles


(Reuters) — A lawyer for Volkswagen A.G. said at a court hearing Thursday that the German automaker believes it can fix 85,000 3.0-liter polluting VW, Audi and Porsche cars and SUVs.

Separately, a U.S. Justice Department lawyer said talks and testing are ongoing to resolve the fate of those vehicles, but said it could take months to resolve.

At the hearing, U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer did not set a formal deadline to fix those vehicles, but set an Aug. 25 status hearing to get an update.
