Carl and Cathy C. v. FCA US LLC

Riverside County, California

Our attorneys had the great pleasure of representing Carl and Cathy C., a retired couple from Palm Desert, California, in their case against FCA having to do with their troubled 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee.  Carl and Cathy’s Jeep suffered no-starts, suspension issues, body and structural problems, electronic issues, and additional serious non-conformities to warranty.  Their case was tried before a jury of eight Los Angeles Federal court in October of 2018 for both violations of the Song Beverly Act and for consumer fraud.  We were very pleased that the jury found that in favor of our clients on all claims and awarded Carl and Cathy all of their money back, a civil penalty equal to double what they paid for the vehicle, and $500,000 in punitive damages against Chrysler on the basis of fraud.
