Court reviews a claim against a used car business for issues including misrepresentation, fraud, and conversion

ASHRAF M. SAWERES v. ROYAL NET AUTO SALE, INC., ET AL. (Tenn. Ct. App. August 3, 2011)

This appeal arises out of an action in which the plaintiff asserted a claim that the agent of a used car business in which the plaintiff allegedly invested committed misrepresentation, fraud, and conversion, and violated the Tennessee Consumer Protection Act in failing to give him stock in the business or compensate him for work performed at the business. Plaintiff also asserted a claim based on defendants' alleged failure to repair his vehicle. The trial court held that plaintiff had not established the necessary elements for any of his claims and dismissed the case; plaintiff appeals. Finding no error, we affirm.
