McKnight v General Motors Corp

Mark S. Baumkel

Case Conclusion Date:August 7, 2007

Practice Area:Class Action

Outcome:settlement of retiree health plan

Description:on behalf of thousands of UAW retirees we stood up against a collusive settlement between GM and the UAW to cut back on vested retiree health benefits. Eventually after tremendous effort on our part the federal court of appeals predictably took the side of the company and allowed the tragic settlement cutting back on retiree health benefits. We're tremendously proud of being the only law firm in the country willing to try to be David against Goliath in this tragedy in the annals of labor law.
