Consumer action lawsuit

31.05.2013
Andrey Gorodissky & Partners have succeeded in the litigation over consumer protection dispute in which AGP represented its client, a motor car distributor. The court dismissed consumer’s claim and held that AGP’s client is neither a manufacturer nor seller of the vehicle in issue and also dismissed claimant’s arguments to the effect that the defendant may be held a person authorized to accept consumers’ claims against the motor car manufacturer. The court found that the mere fact that the defendant had paid for the warranty work with respect to the car in issue does not mean that it was authorized to accept consumers’ claims. Consequently the court held that AGP’s client was an improper defendant in the case. The client was represented by Attorney-at-Law Valentin Moiseev.
