SACRAMENTO — A Chrysler owner is suing the manufacturer, alleging breach of implied warranty and violation of the Magnuson-Moss Act.
Shawn Alger of Antelope, California, filed a complaint Feb. 15 in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against FCA US LLC, formerly known as Chrysler Group LLC, and Does 1-100, alleging they sold a defective vehicle.
According to the complaint, Alger purchased a Chrysler vehicle from the defendants, who did not reveal the car's defect. The plaintiff alleges the defendants breached the warranties by selling a defective vehicle to Alger, failed to disclose the defect to the plaintiff at the time of purchase, and failed to provide required repairs or replacements to address the defect.
Alger seeks trial by jury, compensatory and punitive damages, attorney fees, court costs, expenses, interest, equitable and injunctive relief, and all further relief the court deems just. He is represented by attorneys William A. Kershaw, Stuart C. Talley and Ian J. Barlow of Kershaw, Cook & Talley PC in Sacramento.
