Consumer Law Clinic Helps the Military

The Consumer Law Clinic recently settled a case on behalf of an active duty sailor.  The client purchased a used car from a local used car lot.  After purchasing it, he discovered the car had been in an accident and been written off as a total loss by the prior insurance company.  The Clinic sued the car dealer on his behalf for deceptive and unfair trade practices.  After six months of litigation and the deposition of the owner of the car dealership, the Clinic successfully settled the case in the client’s favor.  The client is currently deployed for six months, so it is a great relief to both him and his family to be free from the car.  The Consumer Law Clinic routinely accepts cases from both current and former military personnel.  Unfortunately, the military are routinely targeted for consumer fraud and are in especial need of the Consumer Law Clinic.
