History


Les Kelley started Kelley Kar Company in Los Angeles with three Model T Fords. In 1926, Kelley published the company’s first Blue Book which became a standard guide in automotive trade in determining car value.


By the 1960s, the company moved from a car dealership to a specialty publisher and focused on the production of its automobile price guide. This was the first publication to use mileage to determine a car's value.


KBB.com was launched in 1995 and within two years became one of the most visited automotive sites. In December 2010, Kelley Blue Book was purchased by Autotrader.com (Cox Automotive).

Irregularity

Irregularity is a minor defect in a party's case which the other party may not be able to oppose again in the suit if he does not do so immediately he becomes aware of the defect.


For example, if a court paper is served on House A instead of House B, but where a party in House B becomes aware of the service and appears in court without complaining while he also reacts by filing his own papers, he cannot subsequently complain about the wrong service. The issue of wrong service will be treated as mere irregularity which cannot nullify a case.

The court may forthwith give judgment dissolving their marriage, while it goes into trial to take evidence on the issue of property, whether to decide that the property be shared by both parties or that it belongs solely to one of them.
