A Simple Bad Used Car Sale - Or Is It?

I don't even remember how I came to read this story on the website. At first blush, this appears to be a typical consumer reporter story about a woman who couldn't get her car title from a used car dealer. When you actually think about the facts as described in the story, they don't add up. Why would this woman aquiese in having her son trade cars in her name several times without her signing or seeing any paperwork? What was the real relationship between the parties? After you read the story, read the comments left by readers. I don't have any idea what the true objective facts are here, but this case reminds me of so many cases I worked when I was in private practice where I thought I had an iron clad case only to find that there was a secret backstory that only became known when I was too far into the case for a graceful (and cheap) exit.
