An American flag flies next to a Volkswagen car dealership in San Diego, CaliforniaA former employee of Volkswagen's U.S. subsidiary is suing the company for damages, claiming he was unlawfully fired after flagging internally what he alleged was illegal deletion of data, a group of German media outlets said on Sunday. The former employee at Volkswagen Group of America's data processing center in Michigan is seeking unspecified damages for losing his job after he tried from Sept. 18 last year to stop a co-worker from deleting data, German broadcasters WDR and NDR as well as newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung, which are working together on the case, cited court documents as saying. VW is facing a series of legal complaints and regulatory investigations after revelations on Sept. 18 last year that the German carmaker manipulated engine control software to understate emissions during tests.
