GM asks Texas court to bar depositions of executives

NEW YORK (Bloomberg) -- General Motors Co., which is fighting about 60 customer lawsuits over demands for money for faulty cars, asked a federal court in Texas not to allow a group of customers to gather information from the company on its handling of ignition switch defects, according to a filing.

A bankruptcy judge reviewing the suits has said he would consider requests to gather material from GM as he decides on whether the car owners' key demands are lawful.

All discovery, or evidence gathering, should be scheduled in coordinated fashion when a decision is made about combining the suits into one, GM said in the May 6 filing in Corpus Christi, responding to a complaint originally filed there.
