GM Withdraws Dismissal Motion in PI Case Due to Conflict With Deferred-Prosecution Settlement

General Motors LLC's deferred-prosecution settlement with the Department of Justice over allegedly faulty ignition switches forced the automaker to withdraw a spoliation motion seeking dismissal of a personal injury case because the motion contradicted facts to which GM had stipulated in its settlement of the criminal investigation. As part of the settlement, GM had agreed not to take contrary positions in other litigation. [10/8/15]
