Car Dealer Did Not Commit Fraud and Bank Wins Breach of Contract Case

A DuPage County jury found in favor of both of Bill Weiler’s clients, a car dealer and a bank. The plaintiff claimed that the car dealer committed fraud by failing to disclose that her new vehicle had been in an accident prior to the time she purchased it and that the car dealer had breached its contract with her. The plaintiff also claimed that, under the terms of her agreement, she did not have to make the payments on her vehicle loan. Mr. Weiler was able to show the jury how the dealership had complied with its contract and that how it had not made any misstatements to the plaintiff. Mr. Weiler was also successful in recovering all of the money owed to the bank on the counterclaim he filed against the plaintiff.
