Phoenix (Thursday, November 20, 2014) -- Attorney General Tom Horne yesterday filed a lawsuit against General Motors, LLC (GM) on behalf of the State of Arizona that seeks civil penalties, claiming that the automaker has deliberately endangered Arizona motorists and the public by intentionally concealing serious safety defects to avoid the cost of recall and replacement.
