MO AG announces $120 million settlement with General Motors
Posted on 19 October 2017 at 12:57pm
JEFFERSON CITY - The attorneys general for 49 states and the District of Columbia reached a settlement with General Motors over ignition switch defects, Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley announced Thursday.
The $120 million multi-state settlement came following an investigation which found GM hid knowledge about defective ignition switches. Under certain circumstances, the switches could move from the "Run" position into the "Accessory" or "Off" positions. That could then lead to a loss of electrical power to systems like power steering, power brakes, and even airbags in the event of a crash.
