Krohn and Moss Lemon Law Victory over GM

Tallahassee, FL. April 8, 2009-Krohn and Moss Attorney Jeffrey Spiegel just convinced a unanimous jury in Tallahassee, Florida that General Motors Corporation violated Florida Lemon Law and that, Plaintiff, Shamair Coward was entitled to a refund for her 2007 Saturn Ion. (Court Case No. 08-CA-1105)

Shamair Coward testified that, when the vehicle was traveling at speeds of approximately 30 miles per hour, the engine would drag, lose power, the RPM’s would go up and the front made a rattle sound. Ms. Coward was forced to put the vehicle into fourth gear to prevent the vehicle from losing power and to lower the RPM’s.

According to court documentation Ms. Coward brought the Saturn Ion into the Manufacturers authorized dealer for repair. Ms. Coward averred in her Complaint filed with the Court that the Ion has been subject to repair on at least three (3) occasions for the same defect, and that the defect remains uncorrected. The jury agreed.

In an effort resolve her case without filing a lawsuit, Ms. Coward first presented her case to the Better Business Bureau and then at Florida’s mandatory arbitration program administered by the Attorney General where she lost before prevailing in front of a jury of her peers on April 6, 2009. Along the way, Ms. Coward was forced to trial due to General Motors refusal to settle her claim by offering only $500 including attorneys’ fees.

At trial the jury’s verdict awarded the plaintiff in a full repurchase of the Saturn Ion which will also require that General Motors pay all of the attorneys’ fees incurred by Ms. Coward’s lawyers
