Couple loses fight to keep RV dealer lawsuit in Florida

ORANGE PARK, Fla. — A retired Jacksonville couple suing an Orange Park RV dealership suffered a blow earlier this month when a judge sided with the dealership, ruling the case will be moved to Michigan, reported News4JAX.

Leon and Patsy Carrigg’s lawsuit, filed in federal court in Jacksonville in May, centers on a used 2013 RV they purchased from General RV in November 2016. The suit seeks at least $75,000.
