Business - Ford, IBM win dismissal of 12-year lawsuit over apartheid abuses

By Jonathan Stempel NEW YORK (Reuters) - A Manhattan federal judge has dismissed a 12-year-old lawsuit accusing Ford Motor Co and IBM Corp of encouraging human rights abuses in apartheid-era South Africa, reluctantly concluding that the case does not belong in U.S. District Judge Shira Scheindlin on Thursday said the black South Africans who brought the case did not show `relevant conduct` by Ford and IBM within the United States to justify holding the companies liable. The plaintiffs had accused Ford, IBM and other companies of having between the 1970s and early 1990s aided South Africa`s former apartheid government in abuses such as killings and torture, by having made military vehicles and computers for government security forces.

Business - Suzuki recalls sedans in U.S. as spider webs block gas vents

Spiders drawn to gasoline vapors and weaving webs that block a hose to vent those vapors have caused Suzuki Motor of America to recall about 19,000 Kizashi mid-size sedans from model years 2010 to 2013, U.S. Air flow blocked in the cars` evaporative emissions system can cause negative pressure in the fuel tank, which can lead to cracks which could cause leaks that increase risk of a fire, said the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Mazda Motor Corp has recalled the Mazda6 twice since 2011 because of spiders building webs in ventilation hoses. No crashes or injuries have been reported in relation to this issue, Suzuki told NHTSA.

Business - GM ignition-switch fund receives claims for more than 100 deaths

By Jessica Dye NEW YORK (Reuters) - A program to compensate victims of crashes linked to a faulty ignition switch in General Motors vehicles has received claims for 107 deaths as of Tuesday, according to a spokeswoman for the lawyer overseeing the program. Amy Weiss, a spokeswoman for Kenneth Feinberg, told Reuters that the 107 deaths were among 309 claims that have been submitted so far. Before a claim is deemed eligible, it will be evaluated by Feinberg and his staff to determine whether the ignition switch was in fact responsible for causing a serious physical injury or death. The number of death claims submitted already far exceeds the 13 deaths that GM has officially attributed to the switch, which prompted the recall of 2.6 million vehicles earlier this year.
