FRANKFORT, Ky. (Legal Newsline) - Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway announced Thursday that his Office of Consumer Protection obtained a temporary injunction against a Central Kentucky seller and installer of cemetery monuments and headstones.
Donald Curtis, who does business as Resource Granite Sales, allegedly violated Kentucky's Consumer Protection Act by taking advance payments from consumers for cemetery products and failing to deliver or install the products. In July 2012, Conway's office obtained a consent judgment against Curtis and Resource Granite Sales that required him to provide certain disclosures to consumers when taking advance payments and file reports with Conway.
Conway alleged that Curtis and Resource Granite Sales violated the July 2012 consent judgment. Conway requested that the court force Curtis to pay civil penalties and injunctive relief.
The Franklin Circuit Court issued the temporary injunction on Tuesday, which prohibits Curtis from making any sales of cemetery monuments personally or under the name of Resource Granite Sales. The injunction requires that Curtis file a sworn report with the court by Nov. 13.
Conway said that consumers who did business with Donald Curtis or Resource Granite Sales whose monument was not installed on time or who has not received a full refund can contact his Office of Consumer Protection.
