GM Court Denies Relief Sought By Asbestos Claimants for Futures Representative and No Decision on Separate Committee for Asbestos Claimants
In the GM bankruptcy, Judge Gerber has entered today his order [Docket No. 2857] denying the asbestos claimant's motion for appointment of a futures representative for asbestos claimants. He also adjourned to another day the motion requesting appointment of a separate official committee to represent asbestos claimants against GM. The latter motion may be put back on for hearing on three day notice. One wonders what negotiations are ongoing and what evidence is being gathered. The order is here.
