GENERAL Motors (GM) has 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 Tanksley rejected GM’s motion to dismiss the revived lawsuit at a hearing in Marietta and set a trial date for April 2016. The lawsuit, brought by the parents of Brooke Melton, who died in a 2010 crash of a Chevy Cobalt, was settled in September 2013. The Meltons filed a new complaint in May, claiming GMhad fraudulently concealed defects and withheld evidence before the accord was reached. GM contended the suit was already settled. – Bloomberg
