GM Files Motion To Delay Action On Lawsuit

Posted: Updated:

(WLNS) - General Motors is asking a federal bankruptcy judge to shield the company from legal claims involving conduct before its 2009 bankruptcy.

Late Tuesday GM filed a motion in a federal court case surrounding defective ignition switches that have led the company to recall more than 2 million cars.

GM's motion is asking the judge to delay action on the lawsuit until the bankruptcy court rules and other federal courts decide if the case should be combined with other lawsuits.

However, the automaker says it's not asking the judge to delay action on a motion to force GM to tell customers not to drive their cars until they are repaired.
