General Motors LLC has agreed to a private, confidential settlement that will resolve hundreds of claims against the automaker involving the defective ignition switch. GM reported the settlement in a letter to U.S. District Judge Jesse Furman, the federal judge overseeing the multidistrict litigation. The letter said 203 plaintiffs with claims pending in the MDL — including a bellwether trial candidate — are among those who would be able to participate in the settlement. It could also resolve hundreds of state court claims.

The plaintiffs affected by the settlement are represented by The Potts Law Firm, Junell & Associates PLLC and the Burnett Law Firm. The case is In re: General Motors LLC Ignition Switch Litigation, (case number 1:14-md-02543) in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.

Number one firm

I really appreciate the law firm, they look into every detail, they review everything with you not just once but several times to make sure everything is correct. They are a very good law firm and I would highly recommend them. They'll always call you back when you call with questions. They're number one in my book.
