General Motors Company (NYSE: GM), a United States-based automaker, has settled the last two so-called bellwether cases resulting from a faulty ignition switch that resulted in 124 deaths and 275 injuries

The settlement came on the eve of what would have been the fourth in a series of test trials intended to help the automaker and the plaintiffs define settlement options in 234 injury and death lawsuits consolidated in Manhattan federal court.

The company said in a statement, 'We have an agreement to settle the last two federal bellwether cases.'
