General Motors is currently fighting about 60 lawsuits from customers who want to be reimbursed for their faulty cars involved in the widely publicized ignition switch recall. The automaker has now asked a federal court in Texas to prevent a group of customers from gathering information on the company’s handling of the recall, according to Automotive News.
A bankruptcy judge reviewing the lawsuits has said he would consider the requests from complainants to gather material from GM as he decides if their demands are lawful. GM is against this, and argues all evidence gathering should be executed in a coordinated fashion when the decision is made to combine the suits into one and the trial can commence.
In April, a lawyer representing plaintiffs requested the multiple lawsuits against GM be consolidated into one case.
