General Motors has told a bankruptcy judge that they would like the 59 litigants currently suing over ignition locks to voluntarily suspend their lawsuits within 10 days. No, it’s not because General Motors isn’t taking the litigants seriously; rather, it’s because the corporation feels “a decision on whether all their demands [are] allowable based on his prior rulings” is required first, according to the The Detroit News.
Litigants who have a different opinion and wish to continue their respective lawsuits as planned “should be required to file papers in court by May 25,” GM said in a filing in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan Wednesday. The papers should explain why the judge shouldn’t force them to suspend their lawsuits.
General Motors will have a conference today that will give more details how they wish the case to proceed. GM Authority will bring you information on that conference when it happens.
