TOPEKA, Kan. — A Kansas roofer has been temporarily banned by court order from doing business in Kansas while a lawsuit alleging violations of consumer protection laws is pending, said Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt.
Glenn Decker, of Enterprise, Kan., who does business as Decker Construction, is temporarily banned from doing business in Kansas, Schmidt said in a release.
District Court Judge Ryan W. Rosauer entered a temporary restraining order in mid-September in Dickinson County District Court prohibiting Decker from acting as a roofing contractor in the state.
The lawsuit alleges that the defendant took payment from a Dickinson County consumer for roofing services but failed to perform adequate work, requiring the consumer to hire another contractor to finish the job.
The defendant also allegedly failed to register as a roofing contractor with the attorney general’s office as required by law.
If proven, according to Schmidt, the allegations would constitute violations of the Kansas Roofing Registration Act (KRRA) and Kansas Consumer Protection Act (KCPA).
