GRETNA – A man is suing another individual who sold him a boat and then repossessed it without warning or cause.
Clayton L. Michaud Jr. filed a complaint on April 1 in the 24th Judicial District Court against Douglas Webb and ABC Insurance Company. According to the complaint, the plaintiff is seeking damages for an incident that began on Feb. 14, 2017 when the plaintiff purchased a 2016 Bluewave boat from the defendant for $33,000.
