The New York Times examines the ongoing scandal over faulty ignition switches at General Motors, noting that the company has already recalled 2.6 million cars and is facing a wave of lawsuits and settlements over possible deaths and injuries related to the malfunctions. The Times says that Kenneth R. Feinberg, the victim-compensation expert hired by GM, â€œis nearing the final stages of an elaborate process to determine who is eligible for payments and for how much.â€ The plan is expected to be made public in the next two weeks and â€œis seen as critical to the companyâ€™s ability to move beyond an issue that has prompted numerous investigations, congressional hearings, a $35 million federal penalty and withering public criticism.â€
