A Michigan auto dealership that failed to complete the title transfer on a car involved in a fatal accident has been hit with a $12 million jury verdict. At trial, the plaintiff's attorney cited Michigan's Owner Liability Statute, arguing that since the dealership did not get a signature on the title transfer, the dealership owned the car at the time of the accident and was responsible for the driver's actions.
