Servicemember Received Pro Bono Legal Assistance with a Consumer Law Issue
An Air Force servicemember sought help with a matter involving a title to a vehicle. After purchasing a vehicle from a car dealership, neither the servicemember nor the finance company received the title to the vehicle. It was discovered that, after purchasing the vehicle, the car dealership went out of business, and an individual had the vehicle on consignment at the car dealership, but the individual never received the money from the car dealership after the servicemember’s purchase. This individual held title to the vehicle. A military legal assistance attorney referred this matter to the ABA Military Pro Bono Project, which located a volunteer attorney who was able to successfully resolve this case through a settlement.
