(Detroit, MI) -- General Motors shareholders are in Detroit for their annual meeting with the company's recall troubles likely topping their agenda. Protestors already showed up Monday outside the Renaissance Center to voice their anger over the slow response by the automaker to recall millions of defective vehicles. Industry experts believe the defect will cost GM billions of dollars in fines and lawsuits. On Monday a federal panel moved the 70-plus lawsuits already filed against General Motors to federal court in New York.
