Jerry Seinfeld doesn’t find anything funny about a legal battle he’s found himself in over a million dollar Porsche sale gone wrong, and now he wants out of the case.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, The “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” star is demanding the lawsuit brought against him by a car collecting company named Fica Frio, be dismissed.
The comedian was sued by Fica Frio after he was accused of selling a fake 1958 Porsche 356 A 1500 GS/GT Carrera Speedster at an auction in 2016.
Seinfeld calls the case “misguided,” and denies all allegations of wrongdoing. He says he had no idea the car was fake, and that he was given a certificate of authenticity when he originally purchased the vehicle.
The star’s legal team argues that, “Instead of working with Mr. Seinfeld in good faith to investigate the Vehicle’s authenticity, Fica Frio has brought this baseless lawsuit against the wrong defendant. Mr. Seinfeld has no knowledge of whether Fica Frio’s allegations regarding the authenticity of the vehicle are correct.”
Seinfeld was sued back in February over the car deal, but then he filed his own lawsuit against the company who sold him the Porsche, European Collectibles.
The star now wants European Collectibles to defend themselves against the lawsuit with Fica Frio, and wants out of the entire debacle.
