Ohio AG Seeks $94,000 Reimbursement From Used-Car Dealership

September 05, 2013

NEWARK, Ohio — Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine today filed a lawsuit against Clark Motor Company of Heath and the three Newark brothers who operated the dealership. The lawsuit seeks reimbursement to the state’s Title Defect Rescission Fund and charges the business with failing to deliver motor vehicle titles as required by law.
“We stepped in to help consumers who failed to receive titles from this dealership, and now we are seeking reimbursement from the dealership,” Attorney General DeWine said. “Dealerships have a responsibility to deliver titles to consumers, and when they don’t, we will take action to help consumers and to hold dealerships accountable.”

Phillip C. Clark Jr., David Clark and Christopher Clark ran Clark Motor Company, which closed in early 2013.

According to the lawsuit, the Attorney General’s Office issued $94,345 from the Title Defect Rescission Fund to resolve complaints from consumers who failed to receive titles for vehicles they purchased from the dealership. In the lawsuit, the attorney general seeks full reimbursement to the fund and charges the dealership and the Clark brothers with violations of Ohio's Certificate of Motor Vehicle Title Act.
