GRETNA – A man is seeking damages from an automobile dealership he claims sold him a faulty vehicle and then did nothing to repair it.
Bradley Harris filed a complaint against General Motors LLC and Bryan Chevrolet Inc. on Jan. 31 in the 24th Judicial District Court. The lawsuit is seeking damages for an incident Harris alleges took place on Jan. 15, when the plaintiff visited the defendant's business to report a number of defects on a vehicle purchased from the defendant.
The suit states that the plaintiff was not given the help required to repair the defects. The plaintiff claims the defendant told him the defects were caused by driving the vehicle too much, offering no viable solutions. The plaintiff alleges that he would not have purchased the vehicle had he known its true condition.
The defendant is accused of negligence and knowingly selling a defective vehicle to the plaintiff. Harris, who is represented by James C. Rather Jr. of Alker & Rather LLC in Mandeville, is seeking all reasonable sums due, attorney fees and court costs.
The case has been assigned to Division N Judge Stephen D. Enright Jr.
