Nashville Used Car Lot Sued for Consumer Protection Violation

One of our cases broke into the news last year. In that case, our client bought a car from a used auto lot. It turns out that at the time of the sale, the car had a salvage title; the car lot had not even applied for a new title at the time of sale, which is against state law. Additionally, our client made a cash down payment of $3,500 which the dealer denied.  The General Sessions court found that the dealer’s actions violated the Tennessee Consumer Protection Act and awarded money damages to our client.
UPDATE:  The dealer appealed, and we recently had a second trial, this time in the Circuit Court of Davidson County, who also found that the dealer violated the Tennessee Consumer Protection Act and awarded our client money damages. (Case No.  13C4572)
