A federal judge in San Francisco is giving Volkswagen and attorneys for vehicle owners affected by the company’s emissions cheating scandal more time to reach a final settlement proposal.

US District Court Judge Charles Breyer issued an order Wednesday extending the deadline to file the settlement deal by a week, to June 28. The new deadline also applies to any agreements Volkswagen reaches with the US Justice Department and the Federal Trade Commission.

Breyer says he made the order at the request of former FBI director Robert Mueller, who is overseeing settlement talks. Breyer also cited the ”highly technical nature” of the proposed settlements.

In April, the judge announced a tentative agreement that would give owners the option of having Volkswagen buy back or repair their vehicles.
