• When she went to the dealership for the first time to see what they can do for her she learned that Eddie the car sales person were not longer there
• She went back to the dealership 6 times trying to fix these problems but the problems wouldn’t go away)

ii. Part B – Case Law

Plaintiff experienced problems with a vehicle purchased from the seller, the buyer discovered that the vehicle was declared a total loss after an accident and was repaired by the used car dealership that sold the car to the seller.
iii. Part C – Application of the law (holding) to facts of the client’s case
1. Discuss key facts of client’s case and key facts of case on point
a. Tell how case on point’s holding applies to client’s case Holding – legal principle that applies to the client’s case
The court held that summary judgment was correct as to the charges of fraud and unfair and deceptive trade practices. There was no general issue with regard to the seller’s knowledge of the vehicle’s accident history. Evidence including affidavits of the seller’s employees who stated that they had no knowledge of the accident history and the title from the used car dealership that did not indicate that the vehicle was rebuilt entitled the seller to judgment as a matter of law. Further the seller failure to conduct a complete title search did not constitute an unfair trade practice. ( PLEASE PUT IT IN YOUR OWN WORDS, I COPIED IT RIGHT FROM THE CASE)
Part D – Counter analysis – Counterargument to the primary argument made (most probably outcome.) You may also include a rebuttal to the counterargument if necessary.
AND THIS IS WHERE IT GETS CONFUSING … It should go something like The facts in Ramsey are very similar to the facts our case; Thus N.C. Gen. Stat § 75.1.1 should be employed…. ( Look at IRAC method- you cant simply google how to write a legal memorandum and it will guide you to the IRAC method which I already provided to here you in my own outline . ANAYLYSIS SECTION IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ONE )

2. State whether rule applies if possible (apply directly)
N.C.Gen. Stat § 75. 1.1 The statute states that “ a)Unfair methods of competition on or affecting commerce, and unfair or deceptive acts or practices in or affecting commerce, are declared unlawful.”
v. Part B – Case Law
Case 2- Lee v. Payton, 67 N.C. App, 313 S.E.2d 247 (1984)

The buyer bought a car from the sellers. The sellers had represented that the car was a demonstrator, but the fact the car was used. The buyer brought an action against the seller. He alleged that the sellers’ misrepresentation constituted an unfair trade practice in violation on NC Gen Stat 75. 1.1 ( Reward it please because its right from the text)
b. Holding – legal principle that applies to the client’s case
The court found that the acts of the sellers in mispresenting the nature and the quality of the car bought by the buyer were unfair or deceptive to the average consumer. The court found that all of the evidence established that a demonstrator was a more valuable automobile than a used car.
vi. Part D – Counter analysis – Counterargument to the primary argument made (most likely outcome.) You may also include a rebuttal to the counterargument if necessary. ( PLEASE LOOK WHAT I SAID IN PART ONE ABOUT THIS PARTICULAR SECTION)
V. General Conclusion – Recap of how authorities apply to clients facts
