AMERICAN automotive giant General Motors is being sued in Cadiz for forcing a local dealership into bankruptcy.

Eight years ago, the company suddenly closed every single Opel factory in Andalucia.

That forced the bankruptcy of Colansa, a dealership that sold Opels in Cadiz city and Jerez, and led to all 150 of its workers losing their jobs.

The Commercial Court of Cadiz is now hearing the case, following a complaint against GM filed by Colansa’s insolvency administrator.

The lawsuit claims the breaking of an agreement between GM, as the manufacturer, and its distributors, including Colansa.

It calls for damages that would meet all of Colansa’s outstanding debts.

General Motors is expected to send several members of its legal team to the trial, while witnesses from dealerships across Spain are scheduled to testify.

General Motors produces vehicles in 37 countries under 13 brands.
