Our runners up for Litigator of the Week include Sullivan & Cromwell’s Robert Giuffra Jr., Sharon Nelles and William Monahan for their win on behalf of Volkswagen in opt-out litigation arising from the “defeat device” emissions controversy.

In the subsequent punitive damages phase, the plaintiffs asked for $582 million and got $100,000.
