SAN FRANCISCO – A Springfield, Ohio company is facing allegations it sold a classic car with engine issues to a California buyer.

Aisling Ferguson filed a complaint on May 11 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Mershon's World of Cars and Does 1 to 20 citing intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligence and fraud.

According to the complaint, in February 2015, the plaintiff purchased a 1959 Corvette for $73,000 from the defendant but found out that the car was not in running condition and that the engine numbers did not match. The plaintiff holds Mershon's World of Cars Does 1 to 20 responsible because the defendants allegedly sold a vehicle to plaintiff but failed to inform plaintiff about the engine damages when the plaintiff was expecting the vehicle to be in driveable condition.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory damages, exemplary damages, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. The plaintiff is represented by John E. Stringer of Law Offices of John E. Stringer in San Francisco.
