Tesla Motors is presently active in the courts, filing a suit in New Jersey final week to appeal the direct-revenue ban of its automobiles in that state. But now it’;s going to have to deal with the self-described “King of Lemon Laws,” Vince Megna, in Wisconsin. Now that we feel about it, this showdown was fairly inevitable.
In a video that is clearly component one particular of who is aware of how many (view it below), Menga sets up his argument against Tesla since the Model S of a consumer won’;t start. Then, he picks up a cardboard George Clooney hitchhiker and goes off to file suit in Milwaukee County Courthouse with an assistant with duct tape on her mouth and “WTF” on her shirt. Subtle, Megna is not.
If that cardboard celebrity bit would seem acquainted to you, then perhaps you’;re considering about the Justin Bieber standup that Megna employed in his lemon lawsuit over the Fisker Karma. In truth, Megna is famous in the auto industry for fighting against automakers that he says make shoddy items. In this case, he claims Tesla sold a faulty Model S to a doctor in Franklin, WI. This medical doctor, Robert Montgomery, acquired his 2013 Signature Efficiency Model S in March 2013, and the vehicle has been in the shop for far more than thirty days because then. He has asked for his cash back, but the automaker has apparently not responded. The nearest shop is in Chicago, so the auto gets to trip in a flatbed back and forth, as you can see in the video beneath. Plus, of program, Megna’;s one particular-sided conversation with a fake George Clooney.
Tesla informed AutoblogGreen it does not comment on pending litigation.
