Filing Date: May 27, 2017
According to the law firm press release, the lawsuit alleges throughout the Class Period defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) General Motors installed three distinct defeat devices in over 700,000 trucks with Duramax diesel engines from 2011 to 2016 to beat emissions tests in the U.S.; (2) in turn, these trucks emit up to five times the legal limit of nitrogen oxide pollutants; and (3) as a result, General Motors’ public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.
This case was transferred to the Eastern District of Michigan on August 8, 2017. On October 13, the Court issued an Order consolidating the case into 17-CV-12185 and appointing Lead Plaintiff and Counsel.
Lead Plaintiff voluntarily dismissed this case on June 15, 2018.

About the Company & Securities Data
"Company" information provides the industry and sector classification and headquarters state for the primary company-defendant in the litigation. In general, "Securities" information provides the ticker symbol, market, and market status for the underlying securities at issue in the litigation.
In most cases, the primary company-defendant actually issued the securities that are the subject of the litigation, and the securities information and company information relate to the same entity. In a small subset of cases, however, the primary company-defendant is not the issuer (for example, cases against third party brokers/dealers), and the securities information and company information do not relate to the same entity.
