GM v FCA isn't going away any time soon with the former reportedly seeking reinstatement of its racketeering case against the latter.

According to a Reuters report, General Motors has filed an appeal with the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati, seeking reinstatement of its racketeering lawsuit against Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. The news agency noted GM sued Fiat Chrysler last year charging its rival with bribing officials of the United Auto Workers union in order to gain advantages in 2009 and 2015 labour contracts that potentially put GM at a multibillion dollar labour 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, Reuters noted.

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