SCOTUS rejects GM’s ignition switch appeal

On Behalf of | Apr 25, 2017 | Product Liability |

The Supreme Court recently rejected General Motors Co.’s appeal seeking to block some lawsuits related to defective ignition switches in its vehicles. The justices upheld a federal appeals court ruling from last year that the company’s 2009 bankruptcy does not shield it from liability for injuries and deaths that occurred pre-bankruptcy because GM knew about the problem and kept it secret from the public for over a decade.
