LAWRENCE, Kan. (Legal Newsline) — Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt announced Dec. 9 that Aaron Joshua Damm, who did business as Kaw Valley Roofing, has been ordered to pay roughly $46,000 in restitution to consumers after allegedly violating the Kansas Consumer Protection Act.
According to Schmidt’s office, Damm committed 25 violations of the Kansas Consumer Protection Act. Among his alleged violations were engaging in door-to-door sales but failing to provide consumers with notice of their three-day right to cancel and accepting payments from eight consumers in various counties without performing any work on their roofs.
Schmidt filed the lawsuit in September 2014. The Douglas County District Court entered summary judgment in favor of Schmidt in October, and recently finalized the judgment’s remaining provisions. As per the judgment, Damm has been banned from advertising, soliciting or selling any services, goods or property in Kansas until he has fully paid the restitution.
In a news release, Schmidt reminded consumers to make sure roof contractors have the proper permits with his office, as required by law.
