When we last met Vince Megna, the Wisconsin-based "King of the Lemon Laws," he was embarrassing Mercedes over a $618,000 judgment for one of his clients, the largest lemon-law award in the country. Megna says that one of his clients had Fisker buy back his Karma recently after it was in the shop for repairs for 120 days in the first seven months of ownership. Since its launch, Fisker has issued two recalls for the Karma, including one linked to fires in Texas and California, but Megna uses the opportunity to press a Fisker dealer about the car's safety -- using the prop of the most famous Karma owner, pop star Justin Bieber. Like Bieber finally getting a baritone, Fisker's first lemon-law case may be a rite of passage into the world of automaking; it's whether any more cases arise after this one that could cause trouble.
