(Reuters) – General Motors Co (N:) on Tuesday filed an appeal with the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati, seeking reinstatement of its racketeering lawsuit against Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV (MI:).
GM sued Fiat Chrysler last year charging the Italian-American automaker with bribing officials of the United Auto Workers union in order to gain advantages in 2009 and 2015 labor contracts that potentially put GM at a multibillion dollar labor cost disadvantage.
A federal judge in Detroit threw out the lawsuit in July and rejected GM’s bid to have it reinstated the following month.
Earlier this year, Fiat Chrysler had asked a U.S. court to toss out GM’s lawsuit, calling it baseless.
