General Motors to seek approval to sell itself


Lots of commentary about the Wall Street bondholders that lost money in this deal and the independent dealers that lost their franchises in this deal. But what about the people who had been maimed or had family members killed in defective GM products, were in the process of or even had been awarded $ awards from a court and GM gets to just walk away from those obligations. Those folks and the employees of terminated dealerships are in my mind the biggest victims in all this.
