NEW YORK Oct 5 A federal judge on Wednesday
said Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV must face part of a
lawsuit accusing the automaker of defrauding U.S. shareholders
by making false and misleading statements about its ability to
comply with vehicle safety laws.
U.S. District Judge Jesse Furman in Manhattan said the
automaker must face claims based on its statements regarding its
alleged substantial regulatory compliance.
He dismissed claims over alleged false statements regarding
how much Fiat Chrysler needed to set aside for recalls.
