WTO wins dismissal of dealer's attempt to block a chargeback

Clutter Motors v. DaimlerChrysler (Cal. N.M.V.B. 2001)

Our client sought to collect a chargeback following a sales incentive audit. In the audit protest, the California New Motor Vehicle Board refused to consider the dealer's request for injunctive relief to bar our client from issuing the chargeback pending the outcome of the dealer's protest. The Board found that California's enabling statute, which only provided the Board with certain duties and powers, did not permit the Board to issue injunctive relief.

Won dismissal of a dealer's attempt to block a chargeback following a sales incentive audit, arguing that the California New Motor Vehicle Board did not have the authority to issue injunctive relief to a dealer that protested the chargeback.
