Ohio AG sues contractor

By Bryan Cohen | Jun 5, 2014

HAMILTON, Ohio (Legal Newsline) - Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine announced a lawsuit on Tuesday against a Butler County concrete contractor who allegedly failed to deliver his promised services to consumers.

Jonathan Anderson, doing business as Anderson & Son Construction, offered home improvement services, including concrete installation. Anderson allegedly charged consumers for work that was either shoddy or not completed.

DeWine's office and the Better Business Bureau received a total of seven complaints about Anderson & Son Construction. Consumers alleged they lost more than $20,000 to Anderson & Son Construction.

"Consumers gave this contractor thousands of dollars for work that was not performed as promised," DeWine said. "While we attempt to resolve these types of complaints out of court, when a contractor fails to respond to our efforts, we must seek justice through the court system."

DeWine alleged that Anderson violated the Ohio's consumer laws by performing shoddy work and failing to deliver. He also alleged Anderson violated the Home Solicitation Sales Act.

The lawsuit seeks restitution for consumers, an injunction to halt future violations and civil penalties.
