AG Seeks to Ban Dealer for Missing Titles Featured

By Staff Writer May 13, 2019 606

The Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost sued a used-car dealership and its owner for failing to deliver titles to customers.  

The lawsuit accuses Thomas Ciatti Sr. and his business, Carite Medina, of violating Ohio’s Consumer Sales Practices Act and Certificate of Motor Vehicle Title Act.

The dealership was located at 2700 Medina Rd. in Medina. It is no longer in operation.

Consumers filed nine complaints against the business with the Attorney-General’s office, most of them alleging that Ciatti never provided titles for cars purchased at the dealership. Ciatti took action to resolve some of the complaints, but claimed he lacked the money needed to resolve all of them.

The state’s Consumer Protection Section paid Ciatti’s customers a total of $13,462 from the Title Defect Recision Fund, a program that helps used car buyers resolve title problems.

The lawsuit seeks reimbursement from Ciatti and an order preventing him from holding a dealer or salesperson license.
