We've amended our petition for review against the FTC for allowing the sale of unfixed, recalled used cars
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has now filed unacceptable consent decrees with 3 more used car dealers, which we and our co-plaintiffs Center for Auto Safety and Consumers for Automobile Reliability and Safety (CARS) consider to be in violation of several provisions of law. We claim that the agency’s decisions to allow such demonstrably unsafe used vehicles to be sold to the public as “safe,” “repaired for safety issues,” or “subject to a rigorous inspection” violate several provisions of law. So we've amended our petition for review to the DC Circuit, U.S. Court of Appeals to challenge a total of 6 (not 3) of the agency's actions. (See attached)
