SCOTUS rejects GM's ignition switch appeal

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.

If you or a loved one was seriously injured or killed in a crash involving a faulty ignition switch in a GM vehicle, contact one of the product liability lawyers at Pfaff, Gill & Ports today. We are always glad to review cases against automakers for any defects causing injuries and deaths.
