|GOOSMANN ATTORNEY SUCCESSFULLY REPRESENTS NEBRASKA-BASED TRUCKING COMPANY
|A Goosmann Law Firm Attorney represented a trucking company in a case against
a former employee who had taken a loan out through the employer to purchase
a vehicle. The loan that the trucking company had entered into with the
former employee was poorly written, identified the wrong parties, and
used vague and inaccurate language, making it a difficult case. In addition
to that, the trucking company trusted their employee to properly handle
the Nebraska DMV and Certificate of Title process. The Goosmann attorney
was able to develop a three-pronged attack filing a Complaint in Replevin,
a Breach of Contract Complaint (with negligent and fraudulent misrepresentation,
conversion, and unjust enrichment claims thrown in as well), and working
with the NE DMV and local County Clerk to place a hold on the VIN of the
subject vehicle. In the Replevin hearing, the attorney walked the defendant
through the steps he had taken to make sure the client was either going
to get the nearly $21,000 owed to them or the vehicle returned. The defendant
then attempted to offer a Certificate of Title that was fraudulently obtained.
After questioning, the Goosmann attorney was able to obtain the vehicle
back for the trucking company.
