Molina v. Mesquite Hyundai, et al.
The plaintiff brought a breach of contract claim against a car dealership as well as the financing institution based on a preservation of claims clause included in the plaintiff’s sales contract to purchase a car. HPTY represented the financing institution. The plaintiff sought rescission of the sales contract plus additional damages. After a bench trial, the Court rendered a nominal verdict for the plaintiff, but ordered the judgment paid in full by the car dealership.
The financing institution also recovered its attorneys' fees from the car dealership via a cross-claim for indemnity.
