I am truly shocked. Chrysler did the right thing.
Considering that Chrysler has been such a powerhouse in the tort reform movement, the fact that they did this is remarkable.
Chrysler changes course on product liability claims
David Shepardson / Detroit News Washington Bureau
Washington -- The Chrysler Group LLC reversed course and agreed to accept product liability claims on vehicles built before the company's good assets exited bankruptcy on June 10.
Chrysler had left behind all of its product liability claims in bankruptcy, which drew outrage in Congress, in part because consumers could be involved in an accident with the 31 million Chrysler vehicles built before June that are on the nation's roads and have little recourse.
