GM settlement carries
implications for company, future cases.
The New York Times (9/22, Henning, Subscription
Publication, 11.82M) “White Collar Watch” analyzes the implications of the
recent GM settlement on the company and the public’s perception of “how justice
is dispensed for corporate wrongdoing.” According to the Times, the government
has expressed that it hopes the settlement will serve as a deterrent to future
companies. The Times cites Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx’s statement,
where he said, “today’s announcement sends a message to manufacturers:
deception and delay are unacceptable, and the price for engaging in such
behavior is high.” The piece also notes that unlike the Toyota case
announcement, which was attended by then-Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr.
and Mr. Foxx, the news conference for G.M. “was notably more subdued.”
