Read the full pleading here in PDF form for a complete breakdown (starting on page 32) of the dealers on the chopping block.

    Anyone else notice that the Notice of Hearing requires anyone filing an objection to submit it on a 3.5 inch floppy disk? A what? When was the last time you used a 3.5" floppy for anything? When did you last own a computer that actually had a floppy drive? Then again, why should I be surprised? After all this is GM, the company that is still bringing you Grandpa's 3.8 liter V6, the company that never has figured out how to build a hybrid, . . . .

    This may be a list of deceased dealers, that GM needed to file as legal terminations just to quash any conversation of these dealers being in the will. So they Joe Jacksoned their asses

That's the Court's rule, not GM's. Courts, perhaps even more than other government institutions, are slow to change. And give the Court credit: they used to require the lawyers to use a computer running DOS and WordPerfect 5.1, and have a Hayes-compatible modem. Thankfully, they also require hard copy as well. Paper documents will still be readable centuries from now.
