Saturn Reviews

A division of the General Motors Corporation, Saturn was established in 1985 as a response to small-car imports from Japan and Germany. The first Saturn rolled off the assembly line in 1990. All original Saturns (S-Series) featured dent-resistant polymer panels, which were a major selling point. Saturn production ended in 2009 and, after failed attempts at finding a new owner, GM will shut down the brand in 2010.

I’ll cover for you at work, no prob.  Read More >

GMIgnitionAndSwitchAssembly02(1)

A federal judge Wednesday denied a request to make available communication between GM and its lawyers over certain cases involving defective ignition switches, Reuters reportedThe documents will remain secret because of attorney-client privilege, the judge wrote.

Lawsuits against GM allege that the company tried to further cover up its defective ignition switches. Those lawsuits sought to uncover documents between the automaker and its lawyers in three separate cases.

“… the case evaluations have all the hallmarks of dispassionate, sober evaluations (perhaps, in hindsight, too dispassionate and sober for their own good) by counsel of the costs and benefits of litigating the cases to their conclusion — just what one would might expect in a defense file and in the absence of a crime or fraud,” Judge Jesse Furman wrote in his ruling.
