Cardenas Metroplex awarded $136 million dollars in lawsuit
HARLINGEN, TEXAS (KVEO NEWS CENTER 23) — A jury has awarded $136 million dollars to Cardenas Metroplex for being defrauded by Mercedes Benz USA. According to the lawsuit, the local auto group purchased a Mercedes Benz dealership in Harlingen with the understanding it could then be moved to the City of McAllen.
After the purchase was finalized, Mercedes Benz USA informed Cardenas Metroplex that relocation was not an option because another Mercedes Benz dealership was already being built in the upper Valley. Mercedes Benz USA has commented that they will appeal the decision.
