Massachusetts' newly elected Attorney General Andrea Campbell said she intends to enforce the state's updated right-to-repair law in June, according to a court filing made public Wednesday.
Campbell, who assumed office in January, said in the filing that terminating her office's nonenforcement stipulation is "in the public interest" and would take effect June 1.
Former Attorney General Maura Healey, who is now governor of Massachusetts, previously said her office will not enforce the state's revised law until after the federal court rules on claims brought by automakers challenging the legislation.
U.S. District Judge Douglas Woodlock has delayed ruling on the more than two-year-old lawsuit at least six times.
"The people of Massachusetts deserve the benefit of the law they approved more than two years ago," Campbell said in the filing. "Consumers and independent repair shops deserve to know whether they will receive access to vehicle repair data in the manner provided by the law."
She said automakers and dealers "need to understand their obligations under the law and take action to achieve compliance."
The Alliance for Automotive Innovation is representing automakers in the lawsuit to block the voter-approved measure that revised and expanded the state's existing right-to-repair law.
