Class Claims Virginia Caves for Car Dealers

RICHMOND, Va. (CN) - A federal class action claims that Virginia violates the Constitution by refusing to enforce out-of-state judgments against Virginia auto dealers. Lead plaintiff Colin Andrew claims Virginia will not enforce his claim filed in D.C. Superior Court against a Virginia auto dealer on the grounds that it "is not bound to honor judgments originating from the District of Columbia courts."

Andrew claims Virginia Attorney General Kenneth Cuccinelli and the Virginia Motor Vehicle Dealer Board are violating the Constitution; he seeks an injunction and costs.

Class counsel is Jason Krumbein.
