CLEVELAND (Legal Newsline) - Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine announced on Tuesday that his office has filed a lawsuit against a Cleveland-based paving company for multiple alleged violations of consumer law.

Family Paving & Cement LLC allegedly violated Ohio's Consumer Sales Practices Act, including failure to deliver, violating the Deposit Rule, performing shoddy work, failing to secure permits and failing to register as a contractor. The lawsuit seeks civil penalties, injunctive relief and restitution for consumers.

"Consumers paid this company thousands of dollars for driveway paving or general home improvement work that either was never delivered or was done in a shoddy manner," DeWine said. "Previous attempts to resolve the issues have failed, leaving us no choice but to file this lawsuit."

DeWine's office has received four consumer complaints against the business since August 2009. In the complaints, consumers allege total losses of $20,000, with one consumer alleging that she paid $16,400 for windows and siding work that was never completed.
