CLEVELAND (Legal Newsline) - Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine announced a lawsuit on Wednesday against a Cleveland-area roofing company after it allegedly failed to deliver complete work or provide refunds.

Sixteen complaints have been filed against Leak Stoppers Inc., based in Mentor, Ohio, with the Better Business Bureau and DeWine's office. DeWine alleges that six of the complaints are unresolved and allege failure to deliver, shoddy or incomplete work, and refunds promised that were never received. The defendants include the company, owners and operators Charles Moses and Christopher Bailey, and employee Jennifer Moses.

"We tried to get the company to address these complaints," DeWine said. "But now we are moving ahead to help those who might have been harmed and to protect any future consumers."

DeWine's office contacted Leak Stoppers Inc. multiple times over the past year requesting that it resolve the complaints. The company, however, allegedly failed to do so. The lawsuit seeks $12,474 in restitution for the specific consumers as well as civil penalties and injunctive relief.
