NEW ORLEANS – A Texas man alleges a car he purchased from a Louisiana dealership was defective.
Seth Butler filed a complaint on Sept. 26 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana against
Mazda Motors of America Inc. and Peretti Motor Co. LLC
alleging that they violated the Louisiana Redhibition Act and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Oct. 26, 2015, he purchased a new 2016 Mazda MX 6. When delivered, the Mazda MX 6 was allegedly defective in material and workmanship, which impaired its use, value and safety.
The plaintiff holds Mazda Motors of America Inc. and Peretti Motor Co. LLC responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to repair the vehicle in a good and workmanlike manner within a reasonable time so as to bring it into conformity with its warranties.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks rescission of the sales contract, award for incidental and consequential damages, economic losses, prejudgment and post-judgment interest, costs of suit and all other relief that the court deems appropriate. He is represented by Richard C. Dalton of Richard C. Dalton LLC in Mandeville.
