TROY, Kan. — The Kansas Attorney General is making an example of a roofing contractor who was found in violation of the state's consumer protection laws.
Murry 66, a Doniphan County roofer, has been temporarily banned from performing roofing services in Kansas and ordered to pay more than $6,700 in restitution after being found in violation of consumer protection laws, according to a release from Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt's office.
Rocky Murry, of Troy, who does business as Murry 66, was ordered to repay a consumer $6,760. He was also temporarily enjoined from operating as a roofing contractor in Kansas until he obtains a roofing contractor registration certificate from the attorney general, as required by law.
District Judge James A. Patton this week entered default judgment after Murry failed to respond to a lawsuit filed in April in Doniphan County District Court. Murry was also ordered to pay a $90,000 civil penalty.
Schmidt alleged that Murry accepted payment from a consumer for roofing services but failed to complete the project, leaving it partially completed and without shingles. The defendant also allegedly failed to register as a roofing contractor with the attorney general’s office. The allegations are violations of the Kansas Roofing Registration Act (KRRA) and Kansas Consumer Protection Act (KCPA).
