Sailor Obtains Favorable Settlement Against Dealership with Pro Bono Help

A Navy servicemember contracted with a dealership to sell his motorcycle on consignment. In the signed agreement, the dealership agreed to pay the lienholder for the motorcycle with the profits collected upon its sale. The dealership sold the motorcycle, but failed to notify the servicemember or pay the lienholder.

The Sailor visited his military legal assistance office and a military attorney referred the Sailor to the ABA Military Pro Bono Project. The Project connected the Sailor with an experienced volunteer attorney. The pro bono attorney was able to settle the matter in the Sailor’s favor.
