GM returns to bankruptcy court seeking legal protection
By Greg Gardner, Detroit Free Press
…the family of Brooke Melton, the Georgia nurse who died in March 2010 after her 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt rolled off a highway near her home, have withdrawn their acceptance of a $5-million settlement GM offered before last year’s recall. But their attorney Lance Cooper said the Meltons, who chose not to pursue a claim with the compensation fund, will proceed with their case regardless of Gerber’s decision. Their daughter’s death occurred about a year after GM emerged from bankruptcy.
