General Motors (GM) is attempting to postpone a class action ruling until a federal bankruptcy judge rules on the company’s responsibility for product liability claims resulting from incidents that took place prior to July 2009, when GM existed from their bankruptcy filing.
GM is arguing that the company that emerged after bankruptcy in 2009 is a different “GM” from it’s predecessor, and as such, it should not be held liable for product liability claims related to vehicle defects and accidents that took place on the “old company’s” watch.
