GRETNA – A Jefferson Parish-based auto dealer is suing another auto dealer and its owners for breach of contract after allegedly selling vehicles provided by them without their titles.

Enterprize Motors II Corp. filed suit Jan. 15 against K&K Auto Brokers LLC, Kerry Weilbaecher, Kristal Weilbaecher and the Department of Public Safety, Office of Motor Vehicles in the 24th Judicial District Court. Enterprize Motors II Corp. claims they delivered 16 vehicles to the defendants on the agreement to hold the vehicle titles for 30 days until they received full payment for them. The plaintiffs allege after K&K Auto Brokers took possession of the vehicles they immediately began to sell them to customers without providing titles and without providing payment for their original purchase. Enterprize Motors II Corp. also asserts that the money from the vehicles sold was not put into their bank accounts and was thus converted to personal use by the Weilbaechers. The plaintiffs allege that the Department of Public Safety, Office of Motor Vehicles issued duplicate titles for the vehicles without the compensation being paid to the plaintiff as their original owner.

The defendant is accused of breach of contract.

An unspecified amount in damages is sought for recovery of all amounts owed, plus legal costs and attorneys fees.

Enterprize Motors II Corp. is represented by New Orleans-based attorney Randall J. Meyer.

The case has been assigned to Division M Judge Henry G. Sullivan Jr.

Case no. 722-938.
