"The state will receive $809,766 of the settlement.."
I wonder how much the state spent pursuing this action? My guess would be the same amount if not more than what the state is expected to get.

Same here rebel, just wondering why WRAL won't ask Cooper or disclose where the money is going. Come on WRAL, finish the story for the public.

It is going in the same place that all that cigarette money went. Absolutely no help for the people who were actually harmed or damaged.

I'm with Rebelyell55-where is the money actually going? I'm also not clear on why the STATE gets money and not just the owners of the vehicles. How was the state harmed?

Nice Job, AG , but not really clear on where the money is going.

Why doesn’t the government go after domestic auto makers for the same problems? I never received a check nor did Raleigh receive a check for the exploding gas tanks that GM put into pickup trucks knowingly. It was all politics, pure and simple.

Good job, AG Cooper!

Has GM ever been made to do the same with all their safety recalls? I don't recall ever reading about one.
