The first trial aimed at aiding settlement of hundreds of lawsuits stemming from General Motors' faulty ignition switches has been dismissed because of questions about the plaintiff's story.

The claims of an Oklahoma man whose air bags didn't inflate when his car crashed in 2014 unraveled during the federal trial in New York.

At the request of lawyers on both sides, a judge dismissed the case Friday.
