The damaged vehicle owners could maybe appeal the over turning by citing the service manual section addressing wheel installation and/or replacement. While determining if a "tire rotation" does or does not include torquing lug nuts to some degree certainly a dealership would have or should have access to the service manual. In that regard they failed to properly install the wheel no matter under what circumstances it was removed and re-installed.

I'm not an attorney naturally but how this case ends up will be interesting.

I find this to be absolute garbage.

if the car came in with tight lug nuts, then it damn well should have left with tight lug nuts.

That judge probably goes to the dealer for all their vehicle service, and just trades it in every other year.

Heck, if tightening lug nuts isn't required, why not just make the lug nuts optional? Does that logic then extend to make oil optional if you go in for an oil change?

No, but the oil filter is probably not required!

Most shops don't even want to let you into the garage area, claiming that their insurance won't cover that, so you can't even make sure that they have done it correctly.

My jaw hurts after hitting the ground. To think it took $70,000 of Lawyer & Court fees to come to such an assignine conclusion simply suggests a lack of Common Sense the supposed "intelligent" people displayed when passing down such a verdict...regardless of what the Defence presented.
