What’s next in the GM recall case?

The ignition switch of a 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt shown here and other small cars was so poorly designed that it easily slipped out of the run position, causing engines to stall. Engineers knew it; as early as 2004, a Cobalt stalled on a GM test track when the driver's knee grazed the key fob. By GM's admission, the defective switches caused over 50 crashes and at least 13 deaths. (AP Photo/Molly Riley)
