A 49-state class action settlement with General Motors could be worth from $80 million to $150 million to car owners, and up to $16.5 million to plaintiffs attorneys. Under the proposed settlement in the auto-repair litigation, the class would be split into three groups based on the cars they drive, the type of engine and the kinds of repairs performed. Plaintiffs would collect $50 to $800 per repair, with speedier repairs generating larger reimbursements.
