General Motors seeks reinstatement of racketeering case against Fiat Chrysler

General Motors on Tuesday filed an appeal with the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati, seeking reinstatement of its racketeering lawsuit against Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA).

GM took legal action against FCA last year charging the Italian-American automaker with bribing officials of the United Auto Workers (UAW) union in order to gain advantages in 2009 and 2015 labor contracts that possibly put GM at a multibillion-dollar labor cost disadvantage.

A federal judge in Detroit turned down a lawsuit in July and rejected GM’s bid to have it reinstated the following month.

Previously this year, FCA had asked a U.S. court to reject GM’s lawsuit, calling it “third-rate spy movie, full of preposterous allegations”.
