DOT seeks advice on lemon law from opponent

Posted Tuesday, May 6, 2014 --- 4:33 p.m.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A top attorney for the state Department of Transportation sought advice on interpreting a new motor vehicle lemon law from someone who had tried to stop the changes in the Legislature.

Vince Megna, the self-proclaimed "Lemon Law King" from Milwaukee, declined this week to assist the DOT attorney in answering a series of questions about the intent of the law.

Megna says doing that would pose a conflict because of future lawsuits he's likely to bring under the law, which he described as "God awful" in an email response Sunday to the DOT attorney.

Megna says he is surprised that a DOT attorney contacted him for his opinion given his outspoken opposition to the law.

The attorney who wrote to Megna did not immediately respond to messages Tuesday.
