Federal judge in Texas to consider ordering parking GM vehicles

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) — A federal judge in Texas will hear arguments on whether General Motors must tell the owners of 2.6 million recalled vehicles to park them until repairs can be made to their faulty ignitions.

An attorney for some owners of GM vehicles asked U.S. District Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos to grant an emergency order Friday in Corpus Christi. Robert Hilliard argued that the GM cars could lose power at any moment and expose their occupants to serious injury or death.

But GM urged the judge not to intervene and instead let the recall of its vehicles overseen by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration proceed. The carmaker said extensive testing had shown that if the recall instructions were followed, there was no risk that the ignition switch would fail.

GM has linked the switch to 13 deaths.
