An Air Force servicemember seeks pro bono assistance with a consumer law issue involving a used car he purchased from a dealership. When the servicemember purchased the vehicle, the seller indicated that the car had clean title. However, when the servicemember subsequently tried to sell the car, he discovered that the vehicle had a salvage title and was worth significantly less than what he paid for it. The servicemember is now facing a substantial loss that he cannot afford.
