On February 9, 2012, DRI member Phil Korovesis, a shareholder with Butzel Long in Detroit, teamed with a colleague to obtain summary disposition from the Oakland County Circuit Court for the defendant seller of a classic race car in the case of Bev Smith Ford v. Atwell. The plaintiff sought damages in the amount of $1 million for breach of contract and fraud based tort claims. The case involved the 2007 sale of a factory built 1965 Dodge Coronet altered wheelbase drag race car. Only 12 of these vehicles were ever made by Chrysler and those were distributed to race teams around the country so that Chrysler could “race it on Sunday and sell it on Monday.”
