Legal Question in Credit and Debt Law in California

My sister-in-law tried to buy a new car for our nephew and was denied because of bad credit. She then gave the dealership my wife's information, assuming that my wife would sign the paperwork when we returned from out of town. They ran my wife's credit, without our consent, and listed her as the primary on the car loan. The loan was approved and released the car to our nephew. Yesterday, we received a call informing us to get down to the dealership and sign the paperwork. We had no idea what they were talking about. Did the dealership have the legal right to run my wife's credit and release a car under her name without her consent , approval, or even knowledge that this was happening?
