Republican-Hating Lawyer at SCOWI Today
Vince Megna, who announced that he will never again represent a Republican, will be looking for income today at SCOWI.
The Wisconsin Supreme Court on Tuesday is set to hear oral arguments in a lemon law case, the kind that prompted a new law that sets presumptive caps on attorney fees in those and other consumer law claims that allowed for "fee shifitng."
The lemon at issue was a Mercedes-Benz. The auto maker says it tried to provide Marco Marquez a refund within 30 days as the law allows, but that Marquez stalled. [That should sound familiar to the Lynch Chevrolet people, no?]
"If a consumer fails to act in good faith, the consumer is not entitled to the lemon law’s statutory remedies of double damages and attorney fees," the Court of Appeals said.
