Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill has filed a lawsuit against a Greenfield monument company. Hill’s office says the suit follows accusations from customers that Greenfield Granite was taking their money without providing gravestones they ordered.
Hill’s office says the lawsuit seeks consumer restitution and costs under the Indiana Deceptive Consumer Sales Act.
“We have laws in place to protect Hoosiers when businesses abandon their obligations to customers,” Hill said. “In this case, we want to ensure that any consumers harmed by this company’s business practices receive refunds or, if they prefer, have their orders fulfilled if products remain available.”
Hill’s office says it has also filed a request for a preliminary injunction and temporary restraining order in an effort to prevent the company from removing, selling or transferring assets until the legal process can play out.
“No one with an ounce of compassion wants to hear about a business taking advantage of grieving customers trying to achieve closure after losing loved ones,” said Hill.
The Greenfield Police Department has taken about 70 reports in which consumers reported that Greenfield Granite failed to properly fulfill orders. Hill’s office says officers have observed individuals at the business turning away customers while workers appear to be removing items from the business.
