A U.S. bankruptcy judge on Friday urged settlement talks in a dispute between General Motors and plaintiffs seeking compensation for the lost value of their cars stemming from a massive recall over a faulty ignition switch. Judge Robert Gerber, of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan, said he would welcome the prospect of a resolution that avoided a "monstrous battle."
