Alleged identity theft; Misappropriation of funds
Plaintiff, QDOS, Inc.
Damian D. Capozzola, Esq. (Law Offices of Damian D. Capozzola – Rolling Hills Estates, CA)
Defendant, The Auto Gallery
Elizabeth L. Kolar, Esq. (Kolar & Associates – Santa Ana, CA)
Plaintiff gave two business checks to co-defendant Fazliq Kader totaling $516,000 for the purchase of a Lamborghini Aventador. Fazliq Kader was allegedly supposed to purchase the vehicle for QDOS but instead purchased it and registered it in his own name. One year later, QDOS alleged that The Auto Gallery should have known that the vehicle was for QDOS instead of Fazliq Kader and had a duty not to sell him the car. The jury disagreed and rendered a defense verdict for The Auto Gallery. The Auto Gallery recovered its costs.
