    How did his truck end up with ISIS?

    Ummm ... commerce?

    Remember ... business is about the bottom line, not saving humanity. (At least that's what I keep hearing.) So who cares who the truck ended up with? Did the dealer make a buck or not?

    Did you watch the video? It's not about the truck.

    You can check out the video around 1:17. The plumber wanted to remove his decal when he traded in the vehicle. The dealership said they would prefer to remove it to avoid paint scratches. They did not remove it as promised. The vehicle was sold off in auction. It eventually ended up with ISIS. He now gets death threats from random jackasses who think he supports ISIS. It is very bad publicity due to negligence.

    USA Today... CS Monitor...

    Watched the video. On one hand, you have a one-in-a-million type of consequence that the dealership could not predict, nor (IMO) is ultimately liable for. On the other hand there may be some negligence involved in selling his vehicle with his business information still on the side door.

    If I were the judge and jury in this case, I would not give the plumber one million dollars.

    He needs a new business, a new phone number, business cards, maybe a Yellow Pages ad ... whatever kind of marketing he normally used in the past. And the truck dealer should pay for it. They also should throw in a nice truck with professional lettering for his new business. The dealer would be hit for far less than one million dollars, and the plumber would be made "whole" ... or at least as much as reasonably possible.
