Krohn and Moss attorney Darin Shaw pulled through an 8 day long Lemon Law trial over Chrysler, LLC Automotive. Shaw successfully won over the jury who returned a verdict in favor of the Plaintiff, Mr. Bill Clark in Victorville, CA. on March 26, 2009 (Court Case #VCVVS041893). A full refund was awarded to Mr. Clark of $47,000. Chrysler will also be responsible for paying all attorney fees to Krohn and Moss, Ltd.

Bill Clark purchased the 2006 Dodge Ram in November 2005 for $47,000. According to Attorney Darin Shaw, the Plaintiff complained about a transmission slippage which involved the vehicle being put in reverse and failing to engage for upwards of 3 seconds. Bill opened the Lemon Law case against Chrysler after the third repair attempt for this problem. Bill claimed that every single repair order was documented by Chrysler as "Could not duplicate" or "No problem found." This happened early in the life of the vehicle--from 2,000 miles to present (55,000 miles). The dealership personnel never actually verified this concern. One salesperson, named Mr. Juan Lopez, actually did and was sent a certified letter noting that he had indeed felt the slippage.

At trial, the jury found in favor of the plaintiff on breach of implied warranty under the Song Beverly Consumer Warranty and the Magnuson-Moss Act, mandating that the Defendant Chrysler refund that Plaintiff's money and take back the car. According to court documents, Chrysler never actually tested it in any way other than a few test drives. More so, the Defendant's expert, Mr. Dick Schmitt, never noted this issue and in fact failed to attempt to duplicate it. He did not follow the vehicle in another vehicle and view it from behind in order to note such problem with the vehicle. (Court Case #VCVVS041893)
