    $185,000 Porsche + Circuit City install = Fail

    BRIDGEWATER A Green Brook resident who owns a 2008 Porsche 911 Turbo has filed suit against Circuit City and an employee for causing $50,000 in damage to the car, which had been brought to the store for a stereo installation.

    In the suit filed in the Civil Division of state Superior Court, Luke Liang said he brought the vehicle valued at $185,000 to Circuit City on Route 28 in Bridgewater on Oct. 18, 2008 for an audio installation.

    After he handed over the car for the work, Brian Murphy, a store employee, drove the car without permission in the parking lot and struck a curb, the suit states.

    The "joyride,'' as the suit characterizes the action, resulted in $50,000 in damage, including the "destruction'' of a wheel and tire, scratches and a broken suspension system.

    The suit notes that Circuit City's rules prohibit employees for taking vehicles for test rides after audio installations.

    Liang claims in the suit that the incident lowered the car's value by $50,000.

    The Circuit City store closed earlier this month after its parent company filed for bankruptcy

    Too bad by the time this suit actually makes any progress, CC will be completely gone and this guy is probably SOL.

    On another note, if you can afford a brand new Porsche 911, WHY THE **** are you going to CC for an install????

    But its not like we could not see it coming. Even with the "no joyride" rule, some fool was bound to try it, esp in a 185k Porsche.

    But yea, CC= giant fail with this one.

    How is he expecting to get his monies, they went out of business, lol.

    Cant blame cc, for ignorance of an employee, but yes, the company was a failure, and so was tweeter. He probably wont see that money back...

    If he filled the suit before the bankruptcy is completed the outstanding debt is added into the bankruptcy as a creditor. All bankruptcies have to account for outstanding lawsuits as part of the liquidation.

    It may be added on, but he still wouldnt see any of it.

    title of thread is misleading. the actual install had nothing to do with the porsche incident.
