GM Must Face Ignition Suit That Spurred Recalls

General Motors Co. failed to convince a Georgia judge to dismiss a lawsuit over the death of a 29-year-old woman that helped trigger the recall of 2.59 million cars over faulty ignition switches.

Cobb County State Court Judge Kathryn J. Tanksley rejected GM’s motion to dismiss the revived lawsuit at a hearing today in Marietta, Georgia, and set a trial date for April 2016.
