Morning Sandwich at Grandma J's Local Kitchen


The Morning Sandwich ($9.00) at Grandma J's Local Kitchen in Humboldt Park solves this problem by using another foolproof ingredient that miraculously enhances everything it touches—bacon. The two slices of very thickly cut bacon add a much needed meaty crunch to this enormous sandwich. Of course, it helps that the eggs are also soft, supple, and still creamy on the inside. Add to that cooked spinach, a fried tomato, and some melted white cheddar to tie everything together, and you have a solid sandwich to start the day.

“King of the Lemon Laws” collects $618,000 judgment from Mercedes in style

Milwaukee lawyer Vince Megna calls himself the King of the Lemon Laws, those arcane rules that allow carbuyers to demand full refunds on new vehicles if they suffer repeated failures after leaving the dealership. This week, Megna collected on the largest U.S. lemon law victory ever -- a $618,000 judgment against Mercedes-Benz over a 2005 E-Class sedan -- while wearing a pendant with a Mercedes emblem that would make Flavor Flav envious.

Since the early 1980s, every state has passed some version of a law that says new-car owners can get a rebate or replacement vehicle if their rides have safety-related defects, major equipement failures or spend more than 30 days out of service for repairs. While estimates suggest thousands of people a year take advantage of such laws, no one keeps track of how many cars are taken back by automakers or how many consumers file claims -- and many of those cars are often repaired and resold. Automakers and dealers also often require disputes to go before arbitrators before they consider any such request for a refund.

Megna claims to have represented more than 1,500 cases, including more than 700 victories against General Motors alone. In October 2005, Waukesha businessman Marco Marquez hired Megna to handle a lemon law claim on his $56,000 2005 Mercedes-Benz E320 sedan, which he'd bought that April and had serviced for failures to start several times afterwards. Over the next month, Megna, the dealership and Mercedes battled back and forth about the claim; at one point, a Mercedes representative asked Marquez to drop his suit and fire Megna so that they could "fix this amongst men."

When Mercedes missed a 30-day deadline to give Marquez the refund he'd asked for, Megna filed suit. Mercedes claimed it had tried to pay a refund on the last day, but that Marquez had intentionally kept his bank from granting the proper approvals. After bouncing through Wisconsin's courts for six years, the state Supreme Court ruled in May that Marquez had done all he was required to do, rejecting Mercedes' defense. By then, the penalties had grown to $618,000.
