The question at hand is whether citizens of the State of Kansas can rely on an official title from the State before buying a car.
TOPEKA, KANSAS (PRWEB) April 24, 2013
Michael Millett, a criminal defense attorney who focuses on misdemeanor and felony criminal cases in Federal, State, Municipal, Juvenile, and Appellate Courts in the State of Kansas, will be arguing a case before the Kansas Supreme Court on May 1st this year. The argument will be broadcast live at the Kansas Supreme Court Live website and archived along with past sessions of the Court.
On May 1st, 2013, Attorney Michael Millett will stand before the Kansas Supreme Court and argue a case that is expected to have state-wide impact for those who buy or sell a privately-owned vehicle and rely on a State-issued Certificate of Title to determine clear ownership of the vehicle prior to a transfer of ownership through sale. The case (Case No. 104,316: Stanley Bank vs. Bazin Excavating, Inc.) concerns interest in an automobile when a State-issued Certificate of Title showed no lien or creditor that would prevent ordinary sale.
"The question at hand is whether citizens of the State of Kansas can rely on an official title from the State before buying a car," said Millett. "In short, my client thought there was no lien on the vehicle, because the Certificate of Title that the State issued did not show a lien. I think the indicators show that the case has state-wide importance for individuals who rely on information from the State before the sale or purchase of vehicles. I'm looking forward to arguing before the Court and making good law for the citizens of the State of Kansas. I hope that success in this case will help to assure citizens that they can rely on an official Certificate of Title when it comes to determining free and clear ownership of a vehicle by the seller."
The Stanley Bank vs. Bazin Excavating case has already passed the Kansas Court of Appeals. The May 1st, 2013 argument before the Supreme Court will be broadcast live to the public at the website for the Kansas Supreme Court. This is the second time that Attorney Michael Millett has argued a case on behalf of a client before the Kansas Supreme Court. In September of 2007, Millett argued a driver's license case before the Kansas Supreme Court (Case No. 94,033: Martin vs. Kansas Dept. of Revenue).
