GM wants judge re­moved in fight with Fiat Chrysler

Arab News - - Business News -

Gen­eral Mo­tors asked a fed­eral ap­peals court to over­turn an or­der that re­quires its CEO to meet the head of Fiat Chrysler by next week to try to set­tle a law­suit re­lated to cor­rup­tion by union lead­ers.

GM also asked the ap­peals court to re­move US Dis­trict Judge Paul Bor­man from the case.

GM is su­ing crosstown ri­val FCA al­leg­ing that it got an ad­van­tage by pay­ing off union lead­ers to re­duce la­bor costs dur­ing con­tract talks.

Bor­man de­scribed the law­suit as a “nu­clear op­tion” that would be a “waste of time and re­sources” for years if he al­lows the case to move for­ward.

The judge or­dered GM CEO Mary Barra and Fiat Chrysler CEO Mike Man­ley to sit down with­out lawyers by July 1 and reach a “sen­si­ble res­o­lu­tion of this huge le­gal dis­trac­tion.”
