Texas Law Firm HMG Asks Court to Move Quickly to Protect Americans

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas, April 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- This afternoon, Bob Hilliard, lead lawyer and partner at Texas law firm Hilliard Munoz Gonzales LLP, filed a response to a sur-reply issued earlier this week by General Motor's legal team that a Federal Judge deny an emergency motion requiring General Motors to issue an immediate "Park It Now" alert to owners of GM vehicles with defective ignition switches.

Robert Hilliard, partner at Hilliard Munoz Gonzales, is lead attorney in the lawsuit against General Motors.

Hilliard says:  
"The court has both the authority and the mandate to bring its full and fair power to bear and stop a defective product from continuing on our roads. There is no task more worthy, no moment more historic."

GM PUTS PROFITS ABOVE SAVING LIVES 
Hilliard's brief states: 
"…GM still has not successfully answered the most important questions: Why shouldn't the Court issue a mandatory injunction requiring GM to tell customers to 'Park It Now' when the lives of millions, including the Plaintiffs are at risk?..." 
"…Why does GM continue to elevate profits over people? Why is GM continuing to lie to the Plaintiffs, the American public, and this Court? Why doesn't GM learn from yesterday, correct its errors today, and allow millions the hope of tomorrow?..."

EMERGENCY "PARK IT NOW" ALERT  
Hilliard is leading the call for General Motors to issue an emergency "Park It Now" alert to drivers of GM vehicles with defective ignition switches, and noted that yesterday the NHTSA fined GM for failure to produce all documents related to the recall of these vehicles. These are the same documents GM is attempting to withhold from Hilliard as he pursues the "Park It Now" mandatory injunction in federal court.
