In early 2014, MLG was investigating a fraud General Motors had been committing on the public relating to defective ignition switches in their vehicles. In working to expose the coverup, MLG discovered that GM had known of the defect for 13 years but failed to issue a recall, which led to the deaths of hundreds of innocent consumers. One of those tragic deaths was that of Benjamin Hair.
Benjamin’s parents, Gordon and Brenda Hair, having been repeatedly lied to by GM and told that there were no known defects, had lost all hope for discovering the truth about their son’s death. Heartbroken by the loss of her only child, and unable to get answers from GM, Brenda Hair suffered a paralyzing stroke, adding to the devastation the family had to endure.
