Melton v. General Motors


08/09/14 – 08/09/14


This is a wrongful death action against General Motors and an auto dealership filed by the parents of a driver allegedly killed due to a faulty, GM-manufactured vehicle ignition switch. The parents had accepted a reported $5 million settlement, but seek to rescind the settlement and renew their action against GM, alleging that the auto manufacturer provided them false information and covered up knowledge of the defective ignition switch. The defense moved to dismiss the action on grounds of res judicata.


Judge denied GM's motion to dismiss.
