CLEVELAND (Legal Newsline) - Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine filed a lawsuit on Thursday against the owner of a Cleveland-area roofing company for multiple alleged violations of state consumer law, including shoddy work and failure to deliver.

Matthew Schultz, the owner of All Seasons Roofing & Home Improvement, offers roof repairs, general home improvement work and installation in Northeast Ohio. All Seasons allegedly did shoddy work or no work at all, according to complaints filed with DeWine's office.

In one complaint, a Strongsville consumer alleged that she paid $9,500 for a new roof. The day after the roof was installed, it allegedly started to leak. A Chardon consumer alleged that after paying $5,000 as a deposit for a new roof, the company never returned to start the work.

DeWine's lawsuit alleges that Schultz, doing business as All Season Roofing & Home Improvement, engaged in multiple violations of the state's Consumer Sales Practices Act, including performing shoddy work, failure to deliver and violating the deposit rule. The lawsuit seeks civil penalties, consumer restitution and injunctive relief.
