`Lemon Law King' Files Lawsuit Against Wisconsin DOT

By Associated Press. CREATED May 15, 2014

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- An attorney who had been contacted to help the state Department of Transportation draft forms required under changes to Wisconsin's lemon law has filed a lawsuit against the state alleging the documents posted online are wrong.

Vince Megna, the self-proclaimed "Lemon Law King," filed the lawsuit against the state DOT on Thursday in Dane County Circuit Court.

The new law requires anyone bringing a lawsuit under the lemon law for a vehicle purchased after March 1 to use new forms created by the DOT.

Megna claims in his lawsuit that the form posted on the DOT site is "replete with errors" making it impossible for a consumer to bring a valid lawsuit.

A spokeswoman for DOT did not immediately return email and phone messages seeking comment.
