Law Offices of Howard G.

GM investors have until February 6, 2024 to file a lead plaintiff motion.

On October 2, 2023, NBC Bay Area reported that a pedestrian had been run over by one of GM’s driverless Cruise AVs, sustaining major injuries. On this news, GM’s stock price fell $1.09, or 3.5%, to close at $31.38 per share on October 3, 2023, thereby injuring investors.

Then, on October 5, 2023, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (“NHTSA”) held a public hearing to recommend a recall of over 50 million airbags that had been linked to potentially deadly explosions – at least 20 million of which were built into GM’s vehicles, with at least one having led to a confirmed fatality. On this news, GM’s stock price fell $0.73, or 2.4%, to close at $30.31 per share on October 5, 2023.

Then, on October 24, 2023, the California Department of Motor Vehicles announced the immediate suspension of Cruise’s deployment and driverless testing permits, stating that Cruise had “misrepresented . . . information related to [the] safety of the autonomous technology of its vehicles.” On this news, GM’s stock price fell $0.66, or 2.3%, to close at $28.56 per share on October 24, 2023.

Then, on October 26, 2023, Cruise announced that it would pause all of its AV operations across the country “while [it] take[s] time to examine [its] processes, systems, and tools.” On this news, GM’s stock price fell $1.33, or 4.7%, to close at $27.22 per share on October 27, 2023, thereby injuring investors further.

The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors that: (1) GM downplayed concerns with its vehicles’ airbags and the need to record additional warranty accruals for related product recalls; (2) GM overstated the extent and efficacy of its efforts to analyze defects in its vehicles’ airbag inflators; (3) Cruise’s AVs and/or AV technology were less safe and well-developed than Defendants had led investors, regulators, and the general public to believe; (4) accordingly, regulatory approval of Cruise’s AV products was unsustainable and the prospects for widespread regulatory approval and adoption of Cruise’s AV products were overstated; (5) all the foregoing subjected GM to an increased risk of governmental and/or regulatory scrutiny and enforcement action, significant legal liabilities, product recalls, and reputational harm; and (6) as a result, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.

Smith, Esquire, of Law Offices of Howard G.
