Wow, that guy has every right to be pissed. Before clicking the link, I figured maybe a physical fight ensued due to an incorrect price listing. Arresting customers to cover up a dealer mistake, that's a new low.

Absolutely!!!

I mean he spent 4 hours in lockup. Was probably called names and suffered through idle threats from others. If he had spent just one more hour there he might have been sodomized!

When you think about it, that only equates to $5.05M per hour - isn't your time worth that at least?

From my business law class, you almost always sue for the value of the company (something along those lines). The actual amount will be set by the court.

I'm against frivolous lawsuits. But this one seems deserved.

How on earth do you get a dealership to report a 'stolen' car even if you have the paperwork to say that a customer bought it

I have to admit, he is suing for some weak stuff
Fear of getting arrested? Nightmares? Loss of reputation?
