BMW North America was ordered by the unanimous federal jury verdict to pay our client actual damages (the full amount of the lease) plus the maximum Civil Monetary Penalty allowed by law (double the actual damages) for willfully violating the Song-Beverly Act, more often known as the Lemon Law. A significant portion of this federal jury trial was spent demonstrating to the jurors that BMW North America had created an intentionally blinded department to investigate customer complaints. We got involved at the trial stage to depose the opposing expert and present the case to the jury.
