San Diego CA – Julian McMillan, a prominent attorney with McMillan Law Group, has secured a major victory in a case against Thor Motor Coach, a leading manufacturer of recreational vehicles based in Indiana. Thor Motor Coach had attempted to avoid the application of California’s lemon law to their vehicles by having the cases transferred to Indiana. However, Julian McMillan opposed the motion and the judge ruled that the case will be adjudicated in California.
This ruling is a significant victory for the consumers of California who have been affected by Thor Motor Coach’s alleged violations of the state’s lemon law. The lemon law provides protection for consumers who have purchased vehicles that have repeatedly failed to meet the manufacturer’s express warranty. If a vehicle is found to be a “lemon,” the manufacturer is required to provide a refund.
Thor Motor Coach had argued that the cases should be transferred to Indiana, where the company is based, on the grounds that they have a forum selection clause in their warranty paperwork. However, Julian McMillan successfully argued that the consumers who purchased the vehicles in question were California residents and that the alleged violations of the lemon law had a significant impact on them in California. The judge agreed with McMillan’s argument and ruled that the case will be heard in California.
This ruling is important not only for the consumers of California who have been affected by Thor Motor Coach’s alleged violations of the lemon law, but also for consumers across the country who may be facing similar situations. It sends a clear message to manufacturers that they cannot evade the consumer protection laws of a state by simply transferring the case to another state.
Julian McMillan, who is known for his expertise in lemon law cases, praised the ruling, saying, “This is a victory for California consumers who have been affected by Thor Motor Coach’s alleged violations of the lemon law. The lemon law is in place to protect consumers and manufacturers must be held accountable when they violate it. We are pleased that this case will be heard in California, where the alleged violations had a significant impact on the consumers.
