PHOENIX (AP) - An Arizona court ruling says an auto garage is entitled to put a lien on a vehicle when its owner has agreed to some of the repairs done even if the owner didn’t consent to all of the work ultimately performed.

Liens are holds placed on property as security for a debt or payment, and the case decided by the state Court of Appeals involved $2,400 of work that a Phoenix garage did on a 1985 Jaguar for its owners.

The car’s owners had refused to pay the repair bill on grounds that they hadn’t authorized some of the work.

The Court of Appeals said Arizona law allows the garage to place a lien on a e vehicle for the amount of the repairs that the vehicle’s owner authorized.
