General Motors has hired Anton Valukas, chairman of Jenner & Block, who served as a US Justice Department-appointed examiner of the downfall of Lehman Brothers, to help lead an internal probe of an ignition-switch failure tied to at least 13 deaths, Bloomberg has reported. The investigation of the handling of the flaw that prompted the recall of 1.6 million vehicles is being conducted jointly by a team led by Chicago-based Valukas and GM General Counsel Michael Millikin, the automaker said. Last month, GM said heavy key rings or jarring can cause ignition switches on some Chevrolet, Pontiac and Saturn vehicles to slip out of position, cutting off power and deactivating air bags. GM has linked the defect to at least 23 crashes, including the 13 deaths.
