The Supreme Court of Arkansas has green lighted plaintiffs to move forward as a class in a pending product liability suit against General Motors for brakes that were allegedly defective.
Boyd Bryant, who previously bought defective brakes from GM in September of 2006, will be the class representative.
In the suit, Bryant claims that from 1999 until 2002, GM sold pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles with defective parking brakes. The suit alleges that GM was aware of the defective brakes as early as 2000, but failed to notify dealerships of the defects for corrective actions to be taken until 2003.
