NEW YORK (AP) — Chrysler Group LLC has sued Daimler AG, saying the German automaker failed to uphold contracts for the delivery of crucial vehicle parts for its 2010 vehicles.
The Auburn Hills, Michigan-based company says the parts are critical for the production of several key 2010 model-year vehicles. Chrysler argues that it may have to shut down production of the vehicles without them.
Chrysler filed the lawsuit in bankruptcy court in New York and is seeking unspecified damages from Daimler, which owned Chrysler until 2007.
Chrysler emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in June after it was bought by Italy's Fiat Group SpA. But a large portion of its old liabilities is continuing to liquidate under court supervision.
