US District Court attorney gives go-ahead for Mahindra lawsuit

US District Court attorney gives go-ahead for Mahindra lawsuit

Mahindra's troubles with the USA never seem to end. The latest in a long line of negative repercussions getting to the SUV manufacturer from the US is that a US District Court has ruled that a lawsuit by five dealers against Mahindra & Mahindra can proceed. The judge from Atlanta said that there was enough evidence for a reasonable person to infer that the Indian manufacturer was involved in a plan to deceive the dealers. M&M had moved to have the case dismissed, but the judge didn't rule in their favour. 

The dealers allege that Mahindra defrauded them when they killed their US market plans all of a sudden. Global Vehicles was the designated importer for the vehicles in the US, and a 350-dealer network was ready to sell the Indian products before a spate of delays saw the manufacturer inexplicably withdraw its plans for the US market in 2010.

A District Court in Missouri has already dismissed a case against Mahindra on the grounds that the dealers' arrangement was with Global Vehicles and not Mahindra directly, but the Atlanta court seems to agree that the dealers have a case against the Indian SUV manufacturer.
