Attorney General sues closed Columbus firm

Jul 6, 2012

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine has filed a lawsuit against a closed bridal business in Columbus that he says violated consumer protection laws by leaving orders unfilled. Alan Ray Bridal and its owner, Alan Ray Church, allegedly failed to notify customers of the closure in April. DeWine says his
office received multiple complaints from Customers who paid between 150 and 3-thousand dollars for dresses they never received. The lawsuit seeks restitution and civil penalties. Church has yet to comment.
