The General Motors lawsuit over faulty ignition switches that caused 124 deaths has finally come to an end. GM will pay $900 million in fines for hiding problems with defective ignition switches from regulators. The faulty switches caused many GM models to stall, cutting power to the steering, brakes and airbags. General Motors was given a reduced fine for cooperating with the investigation, and no individuals will face criminal charges.
