Fariba v. Dealers Servs. Corp., D053162

By FindLaw Staff on October 08, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In an action involving breach of contract and fraud claims, trial court's judgment in favor of plaintiff is affirmed where: 1) the court properly instructed the jury that plaintiff's interest in his consigned vehicles was superior to that of defendant-secured creditor if the secured creditor had actual knowledge that the used car retailer was substantially engaging in selling vehicles that belonged to others; 2) there is substantial evidence the secured creditor had such knowledge; 3) the court properly instructed the jury on the definition of possession, and there is substantial evidence to support the jury's finding plaintiff had possession of the vehicles; and 4) whether the court erred in granting a directed verdict on plaintiff's fraud and breach of contract claims need not be addressed as the jury's verdict in favor of the plaintiff is upheld.
