ST. LOUIS — A consumer is suing a used car dealer, citing alleged concealment of material fact and conversion.

LaQuanna Khemseth filed a complaint June 19 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against Bates Street Motor Co. alleging that the used car dealer failed to comply with the Missouri Merchandising Practices Act.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Feb. 23, she purchased a 2005 Chevrolet Monte Carlo from the defendant for $4,995. After purchase, the plaintiff experienced nonconformities with the vehicle. The plaintiff claims she suffered loss of money and property as a result. 

The plaintiff holds Bates Street Motor Co. responsible because the defendant allegedly refused to provide assistance or attempt to repair the defect and repossessed the vehicle without the plaintiff's knowledge or permission.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages in excess of $500,000, plus costs and attorney's fees, and all further additional relief as the court may deem just and proper. She is represented by Bryan E. Brody and Alexander J. Cornwell of Brody & Cornwell in St. Louis.
