To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Shareholder lawsuit over GM recall dismissed


(Reuters) — General Motors Co. said a judge in Delaware has dismissed a lawsuit by shareholders who wished to recoup losses stemming from the recall of millions of vehicles with an ignition switch defect linked to several deaths.

The judge's ruling on Monday said that the shareholders have not shown any proof that the company's directors acted in bad faith and dismissed the case.

The shareholders alleged that the directors breached their duties by failing to oversee the operations of the company.

The news comes a month after a U.S. bankruptcy judge put on hold dozens of lawsuits accusing the company of concealing an ignition-switch defect while the plaintiffs in those cases appeal an earlier ruling that found their cases were barred.

There are three other shareholder derivative actions, one in Wayne County, Michigan, and two in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, that have been put on hold pending the outcome in Delaware.

GM said it was pleased the Delaware court dismissed the complaint and hopes the other pending cases are also dismissed, the company said in a statement.
