GM seeks reinstatement of its racketeering case against Fiat Chrysler

(Reuters) - General Motors Co <GM.N> on Tuesday filed an appeal with the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati, seeking reinstatement of its racketeering lawsuit against Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV <FCHA.MI>. GM sued Fiat Chrysler last year charging the Italian-American automaker with bribing officials of the United Auto Workers union in order to gain advantages in 2009 and 2015 labor contracts that potentially put GM at a multibillion dollar labor cost disadvantage.

A federal judge in Detroit threw out the lawsuit in July and rejected GM's bid to have it reinstated the following month.

Earlier this year, Fiat Chrysler had asked a U.S. court to toss out GM's lawsuit, calling it baseless.
