GM loses bid to toss Georgia ignition switch suit
General Motors won’t be able to check much of anything off its list of recent worries, as the automaker lost a bid on Saturday to dismiss a lawsuit related to its ignition switch scandal.
GM is being sued for concealing information about the faulty ignition switch in the 2005 Chevy Cobalt driven by 29-year-old Brooke Melton, who died in 2010.
The lawsuit was filed in May, and GM (GM) has attempted to get it thrown out. A judge in Cobb County, Georgia denied GM’s request on Saturday.
