SAN DIEGO – A Texas car dealership is alleged tohave stopped using a credit reporting company's services despite a contract still being in place.
National Credit Center Inc. filed a complaint on Aug. 30 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California against
Grapevine DCJ LLC, doing business as Grapevine Dodge Chrysler Jeep, and Does 1-10
alleging breach of contract.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Jan. 12, 2010, it entered an agreement with the defendant to be its sole provider of Experian and TransUnion credit reports for an initial term of three years, but to be automatically renewed for additional three-year terms unless a written notice is received by plaintiff 60 days before end of term. The suit states that by February, the defendant stopped using plaintiff's services even though the agreement was automatically renewed through Jan. 12, 2019.
The plaintiff holds Grapevine DCJ LLC and Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to pay all outstanding amounts owed for credit reports and refused to resume using plaintiff's services despite violation of agreement.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant, damages of more than $150,000, attorney's fees, costs of suit and further relief as the court may deem proper. It is represented by Jeffrey A. Dollinger and Katy A. Nelson of Woolls & Peer in Los Angeles.
