    I think this is incredibly unfair. There is nothing in that report that states that the lawyers were actually aware that there was a fatal defect - in fact the report makes it clear that they tried to figure out the cause of the airbag failures for years, and the fact that the part number was not changed led them to miss the connection to the ignition switch. Also, I think it is very dangerous to be raising these types of questions about in-house counsel when there was outside counsel also involved in every one of these cases. Yet no one has questioned whether outside counsel did anything wrong. In-house lawyers have the same obligation to zealously defend their client as outside lawyers do, and I‘m surprised that Corporate Counsel is jumping on this bandwagon.
