TOPEKA – A Salina roofer has to pay more than $ 8,300 in restitution and fined $ 110,000 for violating the Kansas Consumer Protection Act, including the Kansas Roofing Registration Act, said Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt , today.
Michael J. Stubbs, who serves as Triple M Roofing and Remodeling, has been temporarily banned from providing roofing services in Kansas. McPherson County District Judge John Klenda upheld a default judgment in McPherson County District Court on March 19 after Stubbs failed to respond to a complaint filed by the Attorney General. Stubbs was ordered to pay a McPherson County resident $ 8,316 in restitution and was fined $ 110,000 for numerous other violations of the Kansas Roofing Registration Act (KRRA). Stubbs and Triple M Roofing and Remodeling are temporarily not allowed to work as roofers until a valid roof registration is received with the Attorney General.
In addition, Schmidt has issued approval judgments with the following 12 roofers for violations of the KRRA in the past few months. The settlements require contractors to pay civil penalties for violations of the KRRA and to comply with the KRRA if they provide roofing services in the future. The 12 roofers punished are:
