Case Type:   Lemon Law, Motor Vehicle
Case:   Jean R. Newman v. Audi of America, No. NC-885618
Venue:   Office of the Attorney General, NY
Date:   November 9, 2010
Plaintiff Attorney(s):   Anthony T. Ballato; Anthony T. Ballato, Esq., Massapequa, NY
Defendant Attorney(s):   Arbitration Advocates, Anthony Martino
Facts:   The consumer, Jean Newman, leased a new 2008 Audi TT Convertible. The consumer received a standard warranty. A few months after leasing the car, the consumer reported problems with the Vehicle, in that on ten (10) different dates she brought the vehicle in for repair. Consumer states that the vehicle had chronic problems with the convertible top and electric failures, which was a material impairment of value. The consumer brought the car to the dealership to have these problems corrected ten (10) times within fifteen (15) months which exceeded the New Car Lemon Law (GBL Article 11-A) threshold of four (4) repair attempts and/or thirty (30) days out of service during the first two (2) years months/18,000 miles. The consumer’s efforts to compel return of the vehicle were denied and she therefore retained Anthony T. Ballato to negotiate a settlement or commence a Lemon Law proceeding. An arbitrator’s decision in favor of the consumer was rendered after a contested hearing.
Verdict:   $54,015.17
