Graciano v. Robinson Ford Sales

Ms. Graciano negotiated the purchase of her vehicle in Spanish. Yet she did not receive a Spanish-language translation of her contract; and the dealership failed to disclose the negative equity in her trade-in. After a jury verdict in April 2005 in her favor, the dealership agreed to settle the case by paying over $30,000 in punitive damages. This was on top of an earlier Lemon Law settlement.
