Ohio AG files suit against Belmont County dealership

DeWine: Second Chance Auto violated vehicle title laws

ST. CLAIRSVILLE, Ohio – Ohio's chief prosecutor announced a lawsuit Tuesday against a Belmont County used car dealership and its owner for allegedly failing to deliver motor vehicle titles to buyers as required by law.
According to Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine, Second Chance Auto and David Ellis Jr., the company’s manager, allegedly failed to give titles to consumers for vehicles they bought from the dealership. The lawsuit seeks to reimburse the state’s Title Defect Recision Fund.
Ellis took over the Bridgeport-based Second Chance Auto in October after the death of the dealership’s owner. The lawsuit alleges the violations of state law took place under Ellis’ watch.
DeWine’s office issued nearly $12,000 from the Title Defect Recision Fund to resolve complaints from consumers who allegedly failed to receive titles from Second Chance Auto. The lawsuit seeks full reimbursement to the fund and alleges the dealership and Ellis engaged in violations of Ohio’s Consumers Sales Practices Act and the Certificate of Motor Vehicle Title Act.
