It worked that way for shareholders lawsuits for GM's cooked financial statements a few years ago. Basically Wagoner cooked the financials not unlike Enron and NorTel. Makes me wonder how he got a pension and not jail time. Harvard and Carlyle connections?
GM is getting away with what I suspect will be eventually coined as the biggest corruption scandle in US history. SEC should have tore into GM 4 years ago.

Get real the FTC monitors large corporation like GM on a monthly basis. If GM had "cooked financial statements a few years ago," they would have been caught a "few years ago." Where do you come up with all your kooky stuff anyway?

Really then why did you say "GM is getting away with what I suspect will be eventually coined as the biggest corruption scandle (sic) in US history?"
Perhaps your were thinking of Global Crossings," but they too were caught by the FTC.

Yes! All ligation is "settled" as part of the courts ruling. Whether any of the litigants received any compensation is doubtful considering GMs debt total.

IMO, piston slap is about as valid as carpel tunnel

Carpal tunnel can be damn serious.

Required surgery in my case. So when some idiot suggests it is not valid, it raises my bile.

My point. But it is a litteral pain, I have come close a couple of times. Fotunately some excercise and abatement of the mouse got me back on track but took months.

Sometimes better support of the wrist on the mouse pad, plus a wrist brace, will bring you back to normal. That has worked on my right (dominant) hand.
On my left hand, neurological testing showed that the interference with the nerves was high, and surgery was the only way to go. Oddly, carpal tunnel "syndrome" most often affects the dominant hand - the one that is physically stressed. Mine was the recessive hand, and the tunnel had to be relieved. It worked well, but recuperation took about a year.

Better yet, turn your mouse 45%, rest you four fingers on the pad and use you thumb!

The lawyers were smart enough to use escrow and cash up front with GM.

Nissan did this with my 1995 Pathfinder. They had a series of engines made that saved drilling some hole. But caused premature piston wear. Once I said it sounds like a diesel, they looked up the serial number, appologised and dropped in a brand new engine I put 250,000 on without issues. To beat all, I wasn't even in the country of origin at the time.
Sure beats the GM experience some are having.
