Fiat Chrysler CEO Told to Give Deposition in Suit Over Jeep Fire

A Georgia judge ordered Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV Chief Executive Officer Sergio Marchionne to give a videotaped deposition in a lawsuit filed by the family of a child killed in a fiery Jeep crash.

The family sued Chrysler in 2012 over the death of 4-year-old Remington Cole Walden. He died after the Jeep Grand Cherokee he was riding was rear-ended and caught fire, according to the lawsuit. The judge ordered the automaker to make Marchionne available for a videotaped deposition in Georgia at a time agreed upon by both parties, according to a copy of the Oct. 14 decision.
