Dec. 29, 2021—Michigan's Eastern U.S. District Court has filed a lawsuit against General Motors and LG on behalf of 30 plaintiffs due to the ongoing saga with the automaker's Chevrolet Bolt EVs and EUVs.

According to a report from the Detroit Free Press via GM Authority, the suit alleges defective battery modules that prompted a massive recall earlier this year "have reduced the resale value of the plaintiff’s vehicles and limited their usefulness."

Powell Miller, manager for Michigan-based Miller Law Firm, is representing the plaintiffs and said both GM and LG imposed drastic restrictions that significantly limited the usefulness of each client's vehicle. 

The plaintiffs are seeking damages north of $5 million, while General Motors has filed a motion to have the suit dismissed on the grounds that it did not know of the defect prior to those vehicles being sold and moved quickly to fix the issue.
