David Anthony Discusses Whether Car Wash is Liable for Theft of Customer’s Car with WKRN-TV

Bone McAllester Norton attorney David M. Anthony spoke with WKRN-TV yesterday about a car stolen from a local gas station over the weekend. The customer was inside the Smith Brothers Car Wash on Gallatin Pike South Saturday, paying for the wash, and when she went outside to retrieve her car, it could not be found. After watching surveillance video, she realized a suspect got into the 2011 gray Hyundai Sonata and drove off. The car wash is claiming no responsibility for the incident.

“Here, [the car wash is] going to allege two things. One, that they only had temporary custody. They didn’t have complete control over it, and they’re probably going to also argue that if she read the fine print on the back of her ticket, there is probably a disclaimer of liability,” David explained.

David concentrates his practice in the areas of bankruptcy, commercial litigation, creditors’ rights, construction and lien litigation.

WKRN-TV Interviews David Anthony about Legal Case Involving Nashville Singer’s Tweets

Bone McAllester Norton attorney David Anthony was interviewed by WKRN-TV last week about a Nashville singer facing a lawsuit after Tweeting about her “bad customer service experience” at the airport. Natalie Grant posted several Tweets about her experience with a Southwest Airlines employee more than two years ago, and that employee sued the artist for defamation and putting her in a false light. The charges were eventually dropped, but a Tennessee Appeals Court recently upheld the false light charge.

David commented on this case on his blog, CreditorsRights101, which prompted WKRN to reach out to him for his input.

“It's easier to complain on Twitter and say things you'd never say to someone face to face, and I think that's the danger of Twitter, and I think that's the danger of this case," he told reporter Lori Mitchell.
