FRANKFORT, Ky. (July 29, 2022) – A Jessamine County Circuit Court today granted Attorney General Daniel Cameron’s request to issue a temporary restraining order against Quality Landscaping LLC to protect Kentucky consumers from deceptive business practices.
“Kentuckians should be able to trust companies to deliver the services they claim to offer," said Attorney General Cameron. "We filed this complaint requesting a temporary restraining order against Quality Landscaping to protect consumers from potential harm while we address allegations of its past deceptive business practices, and we are thankful the court agreed with our request.”
Since June, the Attorney General’s office has received egregious consumer complaints against Quality Landscaping of Nicholasville, which offers construction, landscaping, and hardscaping services. The complaints describe the company’s alleged failure to start work, perform quality work, respond to customer inquiries regarding delays, and to refund money to consumers who terminated their contracts with the company.
KRS 367.190 authorizes Attorney General Cameron to ask a circuit court to issue a restraining order against an entity if there is “reason to believe that any person is using, has used, or is about to use any method, act or practice” to engage in business practices that violate the Kentucky Consumer Protection Act, KRS 367.110.
On Thursday, July 28, Attorney General Cameron filed a complaint against Quality Landscaping, requesting a temporary restraining be issued against the company, its agents, and employees. On Friday, July 29, Jessamine County Circuit Court Judge Hunter Daugherty granted Attorney General Cameron’s request.
The order prevents Quality Landscaping from:
- Conducting new business in Kentucky;
- Requesting, demanding, or receiving payment from current customers; or
- Disposing of or concealing documents or evidence related to the ongoing case.
