Saab owner sues GM for $3 billion

  • The current owner of bankrupt carmaker Saab has sued former partner General Motors (GM) for $3 billion.

    Dutch manufacturer Spyker Cars has accused GM of forcing the Swedish car firm out of business after obstructing a potential sale.

    Saab had been in takeover talks with a Chinese firm and filed for bankruptcy in December after discussions collapsed.

    GM, which owned part of Saab, did not want Chinese carmakers accessing Saab's technology licences.

    Spyker filed its lawsuit in a court in Michigan on Monday. GM has 20 days to respond.
