Wisconsin's self-proclaimed lemon law king has sued direct-order car maker Tesla over a sedan that he says won't run right.

Attorney Vince Megna filed the lawsuit Monday in Milwaukee. It alleges Robert Montgomery of Franklin had the 2013 SP Sedan delivered in March 2013. The car cost $94,777 plus another $4,738 in Wisconsin sales tax.

The lawsuit alleges the car was under warranty but was out of service for more than 30 days to repair various problems.

Wisconsin's lemon law requires manufacturers to repair a warranty-covered defect after four tries in a year or provide a timely refund or replacement. Montgomery would be eligible for double damages under the law.

A Tesla spokeswoman didn't immediately respond to an email Monday.
