Eleven dealerships are currently trying to sue Chrysler Group, LLC, which has asked judge Arthur Gonzalez to block the suit, according to the Detroit News. The dealers are attempting to regain their franchises, saying that their state's motor vehicles statutes outweigh the bankruptcy code. A hearing is scheduled for August 27.



The dealers are primarily from Wisconsin: Boucher Imports (Greenfield), Braeger (Milwaukee), Chilson (Eau Claire), Quaden Motors (Okauchee), Johnson Motors (St. Croix Falls), Lakeland Pontiac-GMC-Jeep (Oconomowoc), Mueller Chrysler of Oshkosh, and Wolf's Motor Car of Plymouth are joined by Little Rock (AK)'s Crain CDJ, Elyria (OH)'s Spitzer Autoworld, and St. George's (UT) Painter's Sun Country Chrysler.

Boucher and Crain are parts of large dealerships groups.
