The U.S. Second Circuit Court of Appeals is allowing plaintiffs to sue General Motors for an ignition-switch defect. In its decision, the Second Circuit cited a 2010 Syracuse Law Review article by Syracuse University College of Law Professor A. Joseph Warburton.

Warburton’s article, Understanding the Bankruptcies of Chrysler and General Motors: A Primer, discussed how the bankruptcies of Chrysler and General Motors could impact future bankruptcies.

“The reorganizations of Chrysler and General Motors in 2009 were complicated bankruptcies,” Warburton said.  “Although they attracted much attention, the bankruptcies were not well understood.”

Professor Warburton

The Law Review was also cited last year by the New York Court of Appeals.
