Doerr Law Firm obtains immediate dismissal of complaint seeking over $1 million in federal court.

March 2, 2017

 

Doerr Law Firm successfully defended a lawsuit filed by parties claiming a Michigan towing company wrongfully converted and acquired title to a motorhome allegedly valued at $350,000.  The plaintiffs asserted claims of conversion, replevin, fraud, and abuse of process, seeking treble damages exceeding $1 million.  In lieu of answering the complaint, Doerr Law Firm, on behalf of the company, filed a motion to dismiss.  In the motion, the company argued that plaintiffs' exclusive remedy was governed by Michigan’s abandonment statute, MCL § 257.252a, et al, which the plaintiffs failed to honor.  The United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan agreed, finding that parties could not circumvent Michigan’s statutory scheme by putting different labels on their claims.  The court granted the motion and dismissed the case with prejudice.
