General Motors Bankruptcy Judge Revives Product Liability Claims

May, 2010

The Judge overseeing the bankruptcy of General Motors has granted two motions filed by Eric G. Zajac, Esquire to revive product liability suits that had been stalled by the General Motors bankruptcy. In an important ruling, the court decided that state court claims against dealerships could go forward. The decision means that the bankruptcy would not prevent adjudication of the claims against the companies that had sold the cars.
