I purchased a car from a lmct july 2014. I was stopped by the police and was told the car was unregistered. A fine of 700 was issued on the spot. The car had never been transferred and now the dealer will not pay the fine. Is there anything I can do?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
