Bob uncovers and obtains overwhelming evidence of several, major consumer exploitation ploys consisting of several distinct schemes, practices and policies of a major auto manufacturer of his new motor vehicle therethrough he personally was harmed, damaged or injured by the manufacturer.
Assume Bob has several counties of the same state where he a court would assume jurisdiction.
The manufacturer is of the size of any auto manufacturer.
There is some specific benefits to Bob filing suit in the county of the seller (i.e. it is also Bob's home county, it has the highest probability for exemplary damages be awarded etc.)
Considering the financial and political power of a major auto manufacturer and a primary employer as it typically the case in any county of any of these giants, how reasonable is it to file suit in state court and specifically do so in their home county?
Most attorneys advise that judges are really cold to such fraud cases while you would assume they are waiting for them "with open arms to hug and kiss you".
Would it be wiser to file in federal court or in another county? Are there any statistics about companies being sued and relieved in there home county vs. elsewhere?
