- March 10 2014 19:42: GM hires law firms it works with to probe recall response - Business News Headlines - Yahoo! News
By Ben Klayman, Paul Lienert and Nick Brown DETROIT (Reuters) - General Motors Co on Monday said it had hired two outside law firms to probe the company's response to ignition-switch problems on cars that have been linked to 13 deaths, but both firms have done business with GM, raising questions of conflict of interest. The review will be led by Jenner & Block chairman Anton "Tony" Valukas, who won wide regard for investigating Lehman Brothers after the financial services firm collapsed in 2008. But GM has worked with Jenner & Block since 2002, and at least two of the automaker's former top attorneys, Robert Osborne and Elmer Johnson, were partners at the Chicago law firm. GM said lawyers from the firm King & Spalding, which represented GM during some of its bankruptcy proceedings and some other litigation work since, will also work on the recall review ordered up by CEO Mary Barra.

Soon, that might be less of an issue: Microsoft is preparing to ship out the tablet's Power Cover keyboard later this month. The $200 Type Cover variant was originally announced with the Surface 2, but didn't make it to market with the new tablets.

(This March 6 story has been corrected to fix spelling of test to verifi from Verify in paragraph 33) By Julie Steenhuysen LA JOLLA, California (Reuters) - When President Bill Clinton announced in 2000 that Craig Venter and Dr. Francis Collins of the National Human Genome Research Institute had succeeded in mapping the human genome, he solemnly declared that the discovery would "revolutionize" the treatment of virtually all human disease. The expectation was that this single reference map of the 3 billion base pairs of DNA -- the human genetic code -- would quickly unlock the secrets of Alzheimer's, diabetes, cancer and other scourges of human health. As it turns out, Clinton's forecast was not unlike President George Bush's "mission accomplished" speech in the early days of the Iraq war, said Dr. Eric Topol of Scripps Translational Science Institute, which is running a meeting On the Future of Genomic Medicine here March 6-7.
