As Robey advertised, the auto was " clean, better and averageвЂќ and with an " 1 month/1, 000 mile Service AgreementвЂќ. After Hinner bought the vehicle, he realized that the car was not as advertised. Robey asserted that since he was not really a resident, as well as the lack of personal jurisdiction that he must be dismissed. В
