Class-Action Corvette Lawsuit Given Go Ahead by Federal Judge
A federal judge has ruled to allow a class-action lawsuit against General Motors, regarding warranty and fraud consumer-rights claims of GM’s Corvette Z06, to go forward. Attorneys representing vehicle owners state the automobile manufacture knowingly sold the vehicle with a defective cooling system causing the engine to overheat suddenly making it dangerous on the road and on the track, contrary to the manufacture’s insistence that it is a track-proven car.
Vehicle owners of the Corvette Z06 are also being represented by the law firms Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro, the Miller Law Firm, and Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen.
On March 29, 2019 Judge Victoria A Robert issued an order supporting plaintiffs’ rights under the state laws in California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and Washington.
Corvette Z06 models with the defective cooling system enter what is called “limp-mode” after several minutes of track use. Power is reduced causing the vehicle to be unable to maintain safe speeds with other cars on the track.
“After nearly two years of litigation we are happy that the court agreed with our position that this case can proceed forward. More importantly, the judge found that our allegations coupled with GM’s own public statement make it reasonable to infer GM knew of the overheating defect prior to the release of the C7 Corvette Z06” said Jason Weisser.
