COLUMBUS, Ohio (Legal Newsline) — Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine announced Nov. 2 his office has filed a consumer protection lawsuit against Koco Jovanovski for allegations of failing to deliver vehicle titles to consumers when operating his Remak Auto Sales business.
DeWine’s office alleged Remak sold vehicles without first obtaining certificates of title for them. Alleged conduct of this nature violates Ohio’s Consumer Sales Practices Act and Certificate of Motor Vehicle Title Act. DeWine’s office used the state’s title defect recision fund to pay out claims to 44 consumers who were allegedly victimized by Jovanovski and Remak Auto Sales.
DeWine seeks a monetary penalty that will be used to refund the TDR. He also seeks to prevent Jovanovski from ever having a car dealer or salesperson license.
The lawsuit was filed in Licking County Court of Common Pleas. Remak Auto Sales is currently defunct, but last operated at 13375 National Road SW in Reynoldsburg.
