Court helps 2 quit snit with car sale

TWO Americans who had a dispute over the sale of a car have reached reconciliation under mediation of Changning District People's Court, judges said yesterday.

The agreed-on solution: Sell the car to a third person.

The plaintiff, whom the court identified as Jenny, signed a contract in October 2008 to buy a Fuqi car with a Zhejiang Province plate from an American identified as Walter. The price was US$14,000.

Walter delivered the car to Jenny and Jenny paid the money after the signing.

But they hadn't clarified all the details.

Jenny thought her payment included the price of a Shanghai plate and that Walter should register her as the car owner. But Walter, thought the trade was complete and the rest up to her.

The impasse dragged on so long that Shanghai changed its emission standards, making it too late to get the plate.

The court decided Jenny bore the major responsibility because she had let time lapse when it was still possible for the car to get a local plate.

But the court suggested the two find another buyer and sell the car to reduce their losses. They agreed.
