New GM will take on future product liability claims, but not the current ones, against Old GM
The consumer group said, "The fact that 'New GM' will protect consumers injured by defective 'Old GM' cars is a positive development for public safety." The key word in this is "future;" new GM won't be responsible for any of the currently pending claims -- those that the consumer group is really fighting over, and that will still be addressed by old GM. Also, no date was given for when the "future" begins, so there is still a fair bit of clarity left to get on this issue.
