Fiat Chrysler hacking case heads toward trial in the US

In the hubbub of news this week from CES in Las Vegas, it may have been easy to miss a big decision by the U.S. Supreme Court. The court decided it won’t hear an appeal by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles challenging a class-action lawsuit over allegations that some of its vehicles are susceptible to hacking.

That means the dispute could go to trial this year, marking the first legal case involving automotive cybersecurity issues.
