Awfully convenient, no?
We're not lawyers, and we haven't been privy to any of the legal documents filed in this case, or to those surrounding the initial sale of Saab to Spyker. However, we'd be very surprised if Muller succeeds -- in large part because the lawsuit was filed in the U.S., the home of the well-established patent laws that GM used to protect its intellectual property.
Moreover, the suit was filed in Michigan, where judges and jurors could be more sympathetic to GM than to a foreign outfit like Spyker.
Then again, who knows? The Saab saga has had more twists and turns than a Lifetime special starring Jennifer Love Hewitt. We'll keep you posted as this latest subplot progresses.
