On 1/28 two US senators urged General Motors to extend it's Victim Compensation fund deadline. They site notification issues should allow victims of the ignition switch recall to have a better opportunity to apply for compensation. General Motors has declined to extend this deadline for crash victims. GM's statement read in part
“Our goal is to be just and timely in compensating the families who lost loved ones and those who suffered physical injury. We previously extended the deadline until Jan. 31, and we do not plan another extension.”
Oddly, GM CEO Mary Barra called the deadline “arbitrary".
The two senators cited the fact that the Department of Justice is in the process of investigating broke any laws while handling (or hiding) the defect from the general public. Also there is the pending litigation regarding GM's liability sheild regarding the 2009 bankruptcy.
