I lost in Small Claims court to a guy who bought a car from me over 3 years ago on Ebay. He lied and claimed the car was salvage and it wasn't and he also claimed the car wasn't original and it was. The Judge didn't even review the evidence he simply took the other guys word. I've filed an appeal and am awaiting a new trail.
The car was a classic car that was in the process of being restored and because the floors and quarter panels were replaced, the Judge agreed that is wasn't original. Now I will have to educate the new Judge and hope they understand.
I have two questions: Does seller on Ebay mean that I sold the car under contract law with a 4 year California Statute of Limitations? And two; isn't the limitations on Fraud 3 years in California? Shouldn't the first Judge have thrown this out?
It's difficult proven the worth of something you sold over 3 years ago and have little documentation for.
Any advice would be appreciated.
