ALEXANDRIA – A St. Landry man alleges a Corvette he purchased is defective and seeks rescission of the sale.
Albert M. Kelly filed a complaint on Sept. 8 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana against General Motors LLC, Billy Chevrolet, Americredit Financial Services Inc. alleging that they violated the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he purchased a new 2016 Chevrolet Corvette from Billy Chevrolet. Few months after purchase, he alleges the vehicle began experiencing defective conditions with the Human Interface Module, which became totally non-operational and impaired its use, value and safety. He alleges he brought the vehicle to authorized locations for repairs but that the defects have not been corrected. The plaintiff holds General Motors LLC, Billy Chevrolet, Americredit Financial Services Inc. responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to perform the repair work in a good and workmanlike manner, failed to repair the vehicle so as to bring it into conformity with the warranties and failed and refused to buy back the defective vehicle.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendants for actual damages, rescission of the sale, out-of-pocket expenses, diminution in value, economic losses, pre- and post-judgment interest, attorney’s fees, costs and all other relief the court deems appropriate. He is represented by Fred A. Pharis of Pharis Law Offices in Alexandria.
