Dec. 4, 2015—The bid made by Takata Corp. and Honda Motor Co. to toss out a class-action lawsuit on behalf of owners with potentially faulty airbags has been thrown out by a U.S. judge, according to a report by Reuters.

So far, the companies have agreed to undisclosed settlements for six of the eight deaths linked to the ruptured airbag inflators.

U.S. District Judge Dederico Moreno’s ruling on Wednesday determined that Honda, Takata and other automakers will continue to face a class-action suit that alleges Takata and other automakers violated anti-racketeering laws.
