AG Sues Defunct Dealer for Missing Titles Featured
05 October 2017
The Ohio Attorney General announced a lawsuit against a car dealer for failing to deliver motor vehicle titles to consumers. The lawsuit against now-defunct AutoExpress of Cincinnati Inc. and operator Lonny D. Donnerberg seeks reimbursement for the Title Defect Recision Fund, which helps reimburse consumers who experience title problems after buying a vehicle from a dealership. The lawsuit also seeks to prevent Donnerberg from obtaining a car dealer or salesperson license in the future. According to the lawsuit, AutoExpress of Cincinnati, which last operated at 203 West Main Street in Amelia, went out of business and left dozens of consumers without titles for vehicles they had purchased. Claims totaling more than $53,800 were paid from the Title Defect Recision Fund to resolve consumers’ title issues.
